After filing Chapter 11 for Bankruptcy Borders Books will be closing 200 stores. It appears that for now the store in downtown Mt. Kisco has avoided the first cut. I spoke with someone at the store on Monday who told me that the Kisco location is one of their better performing stores and that their children’s department is ranked number 3 in the entire chain.
If your local store is not on the list below then do your best to visit more regularly this year to keep it open. Borders may be a corporate giant that killed off local Mom & Pop book and record stores, but I like that the overall vibe reminds me of my old HMV.
