Just sniffing the breeze ... I've been getting one holy hell of a lot of special offer promotions from Barnes & Noble lately. The latest one, in today's mail, is 50% off all after-holiday merchandise (understandable) and all DVDs and Blu-Ray discs 3-for-2. It makes me wonder: Is B&N in trouble that they're not talking about publicly, and trying to whip up revenue any way they can? Did their Christmas season sales fall far short of expectations because hardly anybody has spending money to spare?
We have $125 in B&N gift cards sitting here. If B&N might be on shaky ground, I'm wondering whether we should use them now while we know we still can. Has anyone heard anything...?
