Bookstore bans Wi-Fi, wants customers to actually read
CASPER, Wy. — A bookstore in Wyoming has banned cellphones and laptops, asking customers to “live like it’s 1993.”
A sign posted outside of Wind City Books urges customers to read and let go of their technology, according to Fox News.
The sign reads,” Nope, no Wi-Fi. Welcome to a place for books and coffee. Please leave your phone and laptop in your bag. Take a break! Live like it’s 1993. Emails can wait.”
“We want people to be able to come into the store, relax, enjoy a book, find a book that’s either going to entertain them or inform them,” owner Vicki Burger told KTWO-TV.
Burger says customers have been in full support of the ban and that the bookstore has been quiet and relaxing.
