Indigo Eyes U.S. Expansion - Publishers Weekly

Today, Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere when he heard whispering and muttering outside the Panzermobile. Following the curious noises took our inquisitive kitty boy to the Publishers Weekly site. There he found a post about Indigo Books and Music.

According to Ed Nawotka's post, rumors abound about Indigo Books and Music's proposed expansion into the U.S. retail book sales market. Indigo bookstores are well represented in Canada under such store brand names as Indigo, Chapters, and Coles, among others. The success of the company's new concept superstores there has contributed to the rumor. Speculation is that the first U.S. Indigo bookstore will open in New Jersey in 2018. The Publishers Weekly post states, "Indigo would neither confirm nor deny" plans to expand to the U.S. So, for right now it's just a rumor.
I think they're making a big mistake.

Panzer says, "Umm ... This little kitty wants to know why Indigo would want to come to the U.S. and go head to head with Amazon. ... Haven't they heard Amazon is opening bricks and mortar bookstores in addition to the online store?"

Note: This is a shortish-medium length post. Bring a cup of tea and one and a half muffins for today's reading selection.
