Hopefully B&N, being one of the big guys when it comes to booksellers, isn't setting a precedent here. If there's no money in e-books, I would expect others to also stop distributing them at some point. It may exist as a niche market, but never go mainstream. Companies like Microsoft, for example, with their e-book readers, are counting on the latter.
