It’s time to say goodbye. Bye, Borders


Since the last entry about Borders, things have turned for the worse – Borders has departed from our shores, for good. The final outlet at Parkway Parade locked its shutters 6 days ago.

Went back a few days before they shuttered for good. Bought a few stuff (magazines included) at bargain prices, and I saw this sad, sad state of Borders. Books were everywhere, empty shelves were all transferred to the cordoned area at the back of the shop. Gone for good.

Just wanted to highlight an interesting thing I got from Borders (with help from CY) – a big Borders collectible. Let’s see how much more valuable it will be in like 30 years from now (#hope). For now, it will stay inside my car to handle bottles of water in case of emergencies (quite noble).
