The Sun notices that soft seating is going missing from local bookstores.
"People just come in and spend the day with you and don't buy anything. That's one reason we're minimal on seating," says Al Ackerman, who volunteers at Normal's. "We're not a library or lounge. We're a bookstore, and we're very serious about our bookstore."
We got rid of our soft chairs years ago. Mostly because some dude got grease all over one.
