The point is to create a cultural hub Avolk, and the idea is to make enough money so as to be able to afford those things, to make it an even better cultural hub, to make even more money et cetera. I will be creating a much narrower list for the first cafe, from this one to start with.Originally Posted by avolkiteshvara
I definitely understand what you mean by the softer chairs slowing the turnover rate. The idea is that the chairs will be put throughout the bookstore, but the cafe, like in many Barnes & Noble Starbucks I've seen, will have the characteristically hard chairs, so that people who aren't able to find a softer place to sit, will probably want to leave faster, and then continue to envy those who always seem to get the chairs, and come back again at an earlier time so they get a spot; the point is, they keep coming. I eventually plan on having a restaurant full of hard chairs, and "ordering panels" nearby all the softer ones, so that people who want a snack, don't have to get up for it (that's what the waitresses are for), and keep purchasing my food/books.
