Borders Is Closing Their Remaining Stores: Do You Think This is The End of the Large Brick and Mortar Bookstores?
Now the official announcement has been made the Borders will be closing their remaining stores by September 2011.
My husband and I started talking about the times we would spend an afternoon in a bookstore with Marcus and then head over to the Starbucks to have a coffee and a treat. Nice memories.
Cut to our book buying habits in the last 6 years...we're Amazon.com book buyers. It quick, we don't need to travel to a store and the prices are less.
So, it got me to thinking do you think this marks the end of the large brick and mortar bookstore? Do you purchase your books and magazines online? Do you have an E-reader?
