According to a post by Judith Rosen, Ron Boire, CEO of Barnes and Noble, says the company will be opening a bricks and mortar store with online digital access to ebooks for their Nook in 2016. The new store's marketing model would be similar to Amazon's bricks and mortar store in Seattle, Washington. Panzer told you about Amazon's store opening in November of last year.
