Barnes & Noble to Sell Nook in UK – Shelf Awareness
In October, Barnes & Noble will begin selling the Nook in the U.K. both online and through partnerships with “leading retailers expected to be announced shortly,” the company said. The move marks B&N’s first foreign retail foray.
Hurray! Everything will be available for UK customers on nook.co.uk. However, I think B&N is still looking for a partner. I’m surprised Waterstones is working with Amazon, as W and B&N are essentially the same store…
EDIT: Publishers Lunch has more detailed information to offer.
Nook UK will first sell the company’s Simple Touch and Simple Touch with Glowlight devices, with the tablets available at an undisclosed point. The unnamed UK partners “are expected to support the Nook offering there through both established physical and online channels.”
