I made the mistake of installing fixtures like you can see in this photo from a Barnes and Noble store in New York. What they have is better, easier to shop. The only difference is that they have a single wall with space in front. Mine is in an aisle with not enough space.
The single wall of magazines at this Barnes and Noble store is terrific – easy to shop and a bold statement for their range. It’s something that would work well in a newsagency instead of the traditional magazine valley.
