While the chain hoped to stay afloat after closing a number of its stores earlier this year (including the location on Oracle), it would appear that the rest of Borders' 400ish stores (along with, presumably, the one remaining Tucson location at the Park Place mall) will begin the liquidation process as early as this Friday, with all of the locations closing by September with approximately 11,000 jobs disappearing in the process. I'll miss the 40% off coupons, but not the hit-and-miss service or trying to make my way through the hordes of kids reading manga in the aisles.
