We’re delighted to report that Borders sent out a new e-mail blast to customers in markets with closing stores. This flyer is significantly less confusing than last week’s, which sent r Devin on a heroic quest to get the additional 10% discount that the e-mail had promised him.
Borders announced late yesterday that heartbreak, job loss, and terrible liquidation sales are coming to even more of its stores than previously announced, as part as the company’s bankruptcy plans. In a statement the company said that the stores added to the list will close by late May, and could start liquidation as soon as this weekend.
Catch Ben Popken on Bloomberg TV tonight at 5:45 pm. He’ll be talking about retail liquidations, including the one that’s going on at certain Borders’ stores, and whether they’re a good deal for consumers. (Yeah, right!) There will also be a Worst Company In America update. Tune in to Bloomberg TV, or watch online at Bloomberg.com/tv, at 5:45 p.m. ET. See you there!
