    Forgive my ignorance.....I have been able to figure out almost all of the common abbreviations used here....except B&M. Obviously it refers to retail stores...but what exactly does it stand for?

    Thanks in advance for your patience!

    Randy,

    Welcome to the forum.

    What Michael said. I.e. in a building, as opposed to "operating through the Internet".

    In Dutch BTW stands for Value Added Tax (Belasting Toegevoegde Waarde).

    Someone should add something to the FAQ about all these short forms we use here...took me a while to figure out what YMMV and YGM were all about [​IMG]
