Books-A-Million ends Borders deal, but may still lease some store locations
July 26, 2011 | 10:21 am
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.
