Borders going out of business - Books 60-80% OFF

#1 Postby robert » Sat Sep 03, 2011 3:41 pm

If your local Borders Books is still open, they're selling books (and everything else) for 60-80% off.

I picked up a few books today in the area of sports and business. Tons of books still available at my local Borders.

Happy shopping and reading!

An interesting trend, and a sign of the changing times. The book business is changing fast. Brick-and-mortar stores are dying and disappearing. It consolidated for a while in a few big chains like Borders, and now even the chains are going. About the only ones left holding out are specialty stores and used bookstores. In the meantime, you can get some good deals, it's true.

Time to embrace this online world that is only about 15 years old!

Some brick and mortar stores will last, many won't, especially in the book industry which is constantly changing.
