Borders Going-Out-Of-Business Sale: Don't Bother
We hit up a couple of Borders this past weekend to take advantage of their big "going out of business" sale and...let's just say we were thoroughly underwhelmed.
Big signs talked of savings "up to 40 percent," smaller signs inside indicated that the prices really weren't that much different from a normal Border's day.
Many of the locations -- none in Houston, it appears -- are being taken over by Books-A-Million, and its seems like Borders really isn't looking to get rid of stock to the degree a typical going-out-of-business sale involves.
We bought some books, but it wasn't any bargain. If the sale continues, feel free to ignore it.
We're sorry to see any bookstore close, even a massive chain, but if you're going to close at least offer some damn bargains on the way out.
