Brews and Bocce at B&N? Yep.

In an effort to revive sales Barnes and Noble has announced a plan to open five new imgresconcept stores, including one at the Palladio in Folsom. The new stores will offer better food at larger cafes, bars serving beer and wine, and amenities like a bocce court and a fire pit. All five stores are scheduled to open between now and March 2017.

Though the new stores will have smaller book sections, the hope is to increase foot traffic, which could be good for sales and exposure of local authors (that’s us!). For details and the entire announcement, see the full piece by Amy Collins at The Book Designer.
