Borders UK up for sale - & what else?

Borders UK may be up for sale after a recent review following a quaterly loss The review is said to have included Australian and New Zealand.

We've had only happy experiences with Borders and I'm left wondering what impact there'll be on the book trade here, and on us in particular.

I have always enjoyed spending time in borders either on my own or with my children - great browsing, reading and buying - but have been disappointed in their lack of a loyalty program. Additionally I have been a letter writer for a number of organsiations seeking fundraising assistance - Borders Pacific Office is less than generous in it's response to such requests. Perhaps these issues have contributed to their lack of success in the UK and elsewhere. Tess
