I Should Write My Posts in Quatrains!

So, how many of my core predictions have come true? Better Cafe menu/service, check. Espresso POD machines within the stores, check. Beer/wine sales in our Cafe? Check, as of two months ago. Seriously, people...I feel like friggin' Nostradamus. I can't wait to see what our Media Centers look like...and the patterns of our new comfy chairs/couches...

I LOVE BN. And I'm pleased they've taken my advice :)

The POD machines haven't expanded beyond the three test stores. Beer & wine is being tested in one store. Nostradamus? More like Nostradumbass.

I second this. There's been nary a mention of any of those options in my store. Though it looks like soon we'll be hawking Master Cards at the registers soon.

The best thing about the B&N MasterCard push is that because of consumer protection laws, we aren't allowed to hard sell it. If this is your conversation with your customer:

bookseller: Would you like to sign up for the Barnes & Noble MasterCard and get 5% back on all your purchases here?
customer: No thanks, not interested.

...that's it. End of conversation.

Which stores are they testing the POD machines and wine at? If they did wine it would be so nice for the café to add an offering of cheese/meat plates to go with it. They could add to store sales if they added sales codes to Retail Me Not more often.
