Monkey Business at Barnes & Noble!


I guess that people standing in front of your window taking pictures was not much of a clue!

“Barnes & Noble would like to publicly apologize for what happened in our Coral Gables, Florida store. We believe that a customer played a cruel joke and placed an inappropriate title in the front window of our store, where we were featuring books written by or about President Obama. We want to assure our customers that the book placed by someone other than our booksellers was never intended to be included in our display and was removed as soon as we became aware of the situation. We are looking into it and are taking the steps necessary so that it does not happen again. From time to time customers will move titles from one area of the store to another. In this particular case, we do not condone whatever message may have been intended with the placement of this title in our Presidential display. It certainly was not part of our merchandising and we regret that we didn’t see the placement of this title immediately.”

Mary Ellen Keating, Spokesperson
Barnes & Noble, Inc.

    No surprise that it was the Coral Gables store.
    I’d not think that is a very blue neighborhood.

    Never been to the area but it is the mindset of some people that I will never understand. How in the world could anyone think that this funy?

    I still say that I have never been to area but i am beginning to think that it is okay to wear your KKK sheets and Nazi uniforms openly down there.
