More price-slashing in Borders closure

Books, Comics, Events

Have you picked over your local closing Borders store yet?

Deeper discounts start Friday at the Chandler Pavilions location, according to an e-mail I received this evening that says “this location only.” Claiming no exclusions or exceptions, the notice says prices will be slashed to 30-50 percent off list price in the entire store.

Even the fixtures are for sale.

Other local Borders stores closing as part of the struggling chain’s bankruptcy include locations at Fiesta Mall, two in Phoenix (including the popular Biltmore Fashion Park location), two in Scottsdale and one each in Avondale and Tucson.

UPDATE: I just received an e-mail saying that as of today (Thursday, March 17) discounts at the Chandler store are up to 60 percent off list price.
