Try being a student and renting your textbooks from them. It takes them 2-3 days to get the order out the door and they only ship and deliver on business days. It is fine if you pick the 2-3 weeks shipping option, but if you select 1-2 days then they require the person making the order to be present and sign when UPS delivers in their very narrow delivery time frame (which is a time that you are never home). I continued to use them, because of there cozy relationship with the publishers means they have the best selection of inventory, but Amazon has pretty much caught up.
I'm done with them. They just closed the two stores I normally go to. Luckily we DFWers have the awesome Half-Price Bookstores to still shop at for local purchases.
that's what i would like to know every time it jumps i short some more stock
sooner or later this stock going to plunge
there are a lot of idiots out there who look at past ebitda numbers...simply amazing how many people get trapped in such nonsense...
I ordered 6 books online from Barnes & Noble through eBay and they told me that I could not order 6 because 5 was the limit I could purchase in a 7 day period. Hmmmmm . . . .
Management take note I visited the local B &N store. the salesperson was polite and kind, however they had no HD+ Nooks for sale. I was ready to purchase the NOOK on the spot. I then called the 800 number. A less than competent sales person confirmed that they had no more in stock. I was never offered an incentive to place an order. To the management of B & N;; How do you expect to stay in business, with such lousy inventory control??
It's an exercise in futility to buy a book from these guys. Isn't that what they do? I try to buy something online and they cancel my order and tell me to go the the store to get it. I drive the 25 miles to my closest store only to be told it is out of stock and to buy it online. Hmmm. I guess I will take their advice and buy it online - from someone else. Customers like me are jumping off this boat faster than the sinking Titanic. The way these folks operate their business, seems like bankruptcy is imminent.
SEC investigation? Cooking the books? Lawsuits? 2Million Shares Sold by Founder? Maybe they cant separate the NOOK from other 'core' business because it's covering the other business' losses.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
