Barnes and Noble - Store Layout Fail.

OwenKealy 439 May 3, 2009 at 02:04 PM
I was at a Barnes and Noble I usually don't go to today, trying to find a book relevant to a paper that I'm writing.

While wandering about the store, I passed by the kids section, which bordered on the rest of the store. Then I was stopped in my tracks when I saw this book on the shelf (sorta NSFW), literally right outside the kid's section. Five feet or so, maybe - as was the whole "sexuality" section.

What the heck were they thinking when they laid out the floorplan? I have no objection to the nudity on the cover, really (though it is a bit "graphic" for being right out there on the shelf) but you'd think that they would put it somewhere away from the Berenstain Bears. laugh out loud

Didn't I see you there moving all of the bibles to the fiction section?

No, I was the one putting the Koran with print-outs of those political cartoons from a few years back in with the Graphic Novels.

I usually get dirty looks when I walk through the children's section alone, but those geniuses decided that's where the only bathrooms in the store should go. So now they have to put up with large, 26 year old men that have to take a shit.

Just how often do you find yourself in B&N when you have to take a dump?

Yeah, that is kinda stupid! Our Barnes and Noble has a similar layout. I never really thought about that before. Maybe you should write corporate.

Often, if you're walking around NYC it's one of the cleanest public restrooms you'll find, and there's many of them around the city.
