You seem to be defining 'competition' as 'each player taking no action that might make another player lose.'
Competition is about trying to make the other players lose. All that capitalism requires is a playing field that allows others to play and try to make YOU lose, if they want to, and if they can.
Doing well and attracting a huge amount of customers is not anti-competitive.
Let B&N try to do better and earn those customers back. THAT'S competition.
