""Books-A-Million"" is great for there book secletion, and that is as far as the kuddos go!
The store in Bradenton, Fl is really nice, but ""Barnes & Noble"" succeed in all other areas.
The staff at ""Books-A-Million"" are somewhat rude, arrogant, and sometimes if you ask for a book title or some other item I.E. a calendar for 2004 they seem lacking in the knowledge of what book titles or other items they have in stock and the staff comes off as if they are being put out be being asked any questions!
""Books-A-Million"" is great for runnning in and grabbing what you want in a hurry, but for a more relaxed feel, & knowledgeable employees ""Barnes & Noble"" is for me!
Pros: Parking, Hours, Location
Cons: Customer Service
