Upscale Bookstore Opens Across the Street from Barnes and Noble

Just days after unveiling the remodeled exterior of the MoreCityBricks building, Barnes and Noble staffers find themselves in an uphill battle to keep customers coming in the door as a competitor opens for business across the street.

"It's ridiculous," said one employee. "How can we compete when they have tiled floors AND a bigger skylight?"

Mayor Builder could not be reached for comment, but a memo from the Mayor's office indicated that the pastry selection in the new bookstore's coffee shop is superior to that at Barnes and Noble.

"I just think it's ridiculous that the clerks at the new bookstore have two computers at the customer service desk," said Sally Naysayer. "How could there possibly be that much demand for knowledge at one time?"
