Local Borders Bookstores may not be closing after all.

One of my favorite things to do after we go out and eat is to stop at a Book store and look around. Pick a few books to look over in those comfy chairs. Some of the Stores even have little coffee shops in them. So I was very sad to hear that Borders was declaring Bankruptcy and going to close their locations here in town on vets near causeway and that awesome building on St Charles Ave. BUT today we found out that Borders is seeking permission to sell 30 to 35 of its stores to bookstore chain Books-a- Million. Border said previously that an unnamed bidder was seeking to buy the leases and assets of 30 Borders stores. It named Books-a- Million as the bidder during a hearing at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York on Today and a judge is expected to rule on the matter as well as Borders plan to liquidate its remaining stores later on Thursday. Books-a-million said that they would keep any stores open that were not near and other of their stores which is great news for us because Book-a-million is currently located only on the Northshore and in Houma so let hope they keep both locations here in Open.
