    I just bought The Hunger Games trilogy at the local B&N went home looked up on their website saw it was $20 cheaper online ($25+ cheaper if you include that it had free shipping). Returned the set I bought from the physical store, bought it from B&N online store.

     

    B&N should reduce the amount of inventory they have at physical locations to maybe 3-4 of each book, retail store footprints, and put actual Starbucks in their stores instead of the 'unofficial' ones they have now (as described by the Cafe employee).

    That would take care of that pesky "improved YOY earnings" problem they're having!
