This is nothing new. Living in Michigan I drive by many abandon factory buildings, I also observe the empty shells of once beloved Boarders bookstores too. Over the next ten years at least 30% of Barnes & Noble stores are closing (see the link below) and newspapers will continue their transition online. I’m a product of the collapsing publishing industry having spent years as a daily newspaper and magazine photographer, I’m very familiar with disruption.
Are you prepared for the next disruption coming to your industry? What are you doing about it?
