Barnes & Noble to serve beer and wine

NEW YORK (CNN) – Barnes & Noble is trying to bring in more customers.

With e-books in the palm of just about everyone’s hand, it’s a tall order.

Its solution? Alcohol.

Barnes & Noble is piloting serving beer and wine in four new stores.

The bookstore is not stopping there. It plans on adding real food to some store too by offering breakfast, lunch, dinner.  Barnes & Noble has hired wait staff and an executive chef.

The new stores will feature a larger cafe area to accommodate the new amenities.

The first store will open in Eastchester, New York in the fall. Three others spread around the U.S. by Christmas.
