As we near the official kick-off of the holiday shopping season, we wanted to provide an update on nook, one of this year’s most popular holiday gifts. nook continues to be the fastest-selling product at Barnes & Noble, and pre-orders have continued to exceed our expectations.
While we increased production based on the high consumer interest, we’ve sold out of our initial nook allotment available for delivery before the holidays.
All customers ordering a nook beginning today, November 20 should expect their devices to ship beginning the week of January 4, 2010.
Update: Customers ordering nook beginning today, November 30, should expect their devices to ship on or around Jan. 11, 2010.
To assist those customers who are purchasing nooks as holiday gifts, we have created a special holiday certificate, noting an expected January ship date. Beginning today, any customer pre-ordering nook as a gift will have the option to receive a special certificate at no cost -- either in-store or via mail, for those pre-ordering online.
We continue to ramp up nook supply to meet the demand in the New Year. We’re committed to providing timely updates to our customers on expected nook availability and will do so through in-store, online and our direct-to-customer communications throughout the holiday season.
