Border Books Franchises.

I wanted to rant a tad on Borders Books, and how they have so graciously treated those independent franchises who gave them business and trusted them.

The nail is in the coffin now on these people, as Borders has decided to yank their right to carry the name. Thus effectively pulling all distribution and purchasing ability from these locations. So in other words, they are forcing these stores to close down.

Borders was once my store of choice, then one here in Ann Arbor was wonderful, good people, people who cared about books. Service was spot on and so on. However now they are no more, they are gone and relegated to the annals of failed stores and ideas. Businesses fail, that is a fact of life, however when a store is FORCED to close over their name....... Well that just is horrible.
