Borders liquidation in final week
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The Topsy Lane Borders Book Store is in the last days of its liquidation.
Signs declaring the final 10 days for the store located in Carson Valley Plaza went up Saturday.
Borders Group filed for bankruptcy July 18, after seeking court approval to liquidate its 399 stores when the company failed to receive any bids that would keep the 40-year-old chain in operation.
In a statement, Borders President Mike Edwards said the changing book industry and the economy hastened the chain’s demise.
