Hasta Luego, Borders

Published July 19, 2011 by LS Murphy

Courtesy Windows7Reports.com The news of Borders liquidation isn’t a surprise to those who’ve been following the once mighty stores downfall. That doesn’t make it less depressing.

 Is it because of e-books? Maybe to a degree. Borders had its own e-reader.

 Is it because of Barnes & Noble or Amazon? Maybe, but it can’t be blamed entirely on competition.

 Is it because of the economic downfall? More than likely this is the case. Add that to rapid expansion and general mismanagement and you have the ingredients for disaster.

I, for one, am sad to see Borders go as I frequented the two stores near me quite often. It won’t be the same to walk into a different bookstore. The employees of Borders were always kind and always knew what I was looking for, even if I didn’t.

Goodbye, Borders. You will be missed.
