Books a Million to buy 40 Borders stores

http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2011/10/books-a-million_plans_to_open.html

"The nation’s third-largest book retailer plans to open 40 stores, mostly in former Borders, including nine in Pennsylvania."

I've been waiting to see something like this. BAMM sells a lot of discounted books and picture heavy books so their business might be preserved longer in transition from p->e.

Other uses for an old Borders store: PetSmart

That required a zoning amendment.

Popup Halloween shops are occupying some Borders as well:

Other popup uses mentioned in the article: a music festival, a photography festival.
