Books-A-Million ends Borders deal, but may still lease some store locations

When Borders announced liquidation last week, there was a brief glimmer of hope that thirty of the stores might still be saved under a deal with Books-A-Million. That hope is now gone, with BAM’s CEO telling newspapers that his company couldn’t reach a satisfactory deal with Borders in time (some of the stores had already started going-out-of-business sales).

However, BAM may independently lease some of the store locations Borders leaves behind, like the former Borders store at Huntington Mall in Barboursville, West Virginia.

    I’ve been into BAM stores. I’m not sure more of them would be doing anyone a favor…

  2. Going anywhere near a BAM store always makes me feel dirty. Low rent in a really bad way.
