Should you buy and operate a bookmobile? This session will focus on bookstores that have chosen to create a mobile version of their store and brand. And bookstores are not the only retail outlets that are creating a moveable experience for consumers. Panelists from bookstores and a local record store will explain the business model and answer questions.
