Barnes & Noble has notified its users that it will shut down the Nook App Store, Nook Video, and the UK Nook Store on March 15th. The company sent out an email to users and developers on Thursday explaining that third-party app sales and in-app purchases would soon cease to work in the Nook App Store, and pushed users and developers toward the Google Play Store for future app transactions.

The company did note that previously purchased apps would still be available for download. Barnes & Noble says the change was made so it could focus on its "core digital content business, which are Books and Newsstand," but also probably has to do with the fact that no one remembered the Nook App Store was a thing until you read this article.
