Border’s recently announced that they are filing bankruptcy and will be closing 30% of their book stores across the nation. All jokes aside, I will miss Border’s when they close down for good. It was one of my favorite places to check out new books and magazines on my once a month jaunt. I’ve bought several books and magazines from Border’s, using one of the many discount coupons. My biggest gripe (or biggest wish) about the chain was not having the option to redeem a Border’s electronic coupon on my iPod. Instead, I would have to print the coupon out and bring it along with me.
The only national bookstore left standing will be Barnes & Nobles – and I hope they’re around for a while. I love bookstores, and will hate to see them go. What about you? How do you feel about the recent Border’s bankruptcy announcement?
