PUBLIC VIEWPOINT: Adult Magazine’s Placement Troublesome
Posted: November 28, 2012 at 2:15 a.m.
As a teacher and a mom, I often went into Hastings on College Ave. in Fayetteville to buy books. They often have great quality books in their bargain bins, and having the option of buying used books for a fraction of the price was nice. Additionally they give a teacher discount better than the other major bookseller in Fayetteville. However, this summer ended my shopping sprees at Hastings when I noticed that on the direct path to the children’s book section, the store had set up a Playboy magazine display in the middle of the aisle. This display is about three to four feet high, just perfect for advertising this adult magazine to young children, and it faces customers as they walk past it either way.
