Barnes and Noble is opening a new store in Indianapolis. Amidst all the news of store closings and poor Nook sales, the nearly 150 year old book seller keeps swinging. Publishers Weekly reports the new location “will have a NOOK Boutique along with an expanded children’s department and educational toys and games. The store will carry over 60,000 books and will hold NOOK Nights on Wednesday evenings and training classes on Saturday mornings.”
In other book store news, the former CFO of Borders Books Edward Wilhelm has been nominated to serve on the board of Books-A-Million.
