    Borders Bookstore ceasing trading on Tuesday.

    Borders closing for good on Tues after administrators have failed to save the company, could be some reduced items for Christmas?

    Such a shame for the staff, heart goes out to them.

    real tragedy for their staff-was in the glasgow one yesterday and the shelves are looking extremely bare-not a lot left but I did get monsters vs aliens blu ray for 2.50 with the 3d glasses and a few books for stocking fillers.

    Some companies deserves to go............... NOT Borders......... Really sad......:-(

    No disrespecting the staff but Borders were never the cheapest on the high street.
    My wife used to work in a book distributors and delt with Borders returns, just about every book they returned were in such a state because customers would spill there coffee over them in the instore coffee shop and Borders would then try to send back for refunds. Nearly all were rejected as they should be perfect condition when they were sent back. Needless to say they were all sent back to Borders at Borders expense and were then lumbered with a load of unsellable books. And we are talking about thousands of pounds of books per week so it's no suprise that they are in the position they're in.

    Not totally relevant but strange karma that my friend worked for a Christian bookshop and they have gone into administration yesterday and none of the staff are getting their final month/6 weeks wages.

    I just find it kinda funny that a Christian company that is anti gay, anti sex before marriage etc and all about pruity has gone bankrupt.
