Read this... " Borders staff say farewell to customers with heartfelt note "

and abit shocked that it eventually happened

Thanks Borders for the memories....I spent a good time there when I was abit and also when I was much younger....especially when I was still a bachelor.

Now with a slight regret......if I had read more books....instead of the net....could this be avoided? Maybe not..but.......sigh


Thanks and goodbye....I will miss you.

I read some Borders patron's comment on straits times...they say it's bad if border closes because she used to come there to read books with her kid (for free)

no wonder the shop closes hor Rolling Eyes

want free stuff, go library lah

I went to borders about last 2 months ago. Was looking to buy some magazines, guess what saw many people sitting or standing browsing the magazines. Tried to select some some newly pack nice condition but sadly most have "dog ear". In the end went to Taka Kino to buy.

So well i guess borders had hold till it very end...
