"Sales are to begin Saturday at the 200 Borders bookstores that the chain is closing, including 15 in the Chicago area. Customers can get discounts of up to 40% at the closing stores, according to a release from Michigan-based Borders Group Inc., which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this week. CDs, DVDs and other items will have substantial price reductions, the company said." Read the rest of the article here.

The neighborhood invested a lot of tax money in this store via the Broadway/Lawrence TIF.
How horribly depressing... this Borders is one of my favorite things about the neighborhood :-\ReplyDelete
On Wednesday numerous local political campaigns will be selling furniture and a variety of office equipment at rock bottom prices.ReplyDelete

I don't intend to sound facetious with this. Where will the homeless people go during the day when Borders closes?ReplyDelete
