In today's Wall Street Journal, Borders president Mike Edwards gives his first interview since bankruptcy and hints at the future of what remains of Tom and Louis Borders's company:
Mr. Edwards said that he would like to have 15,000 square feet reserved for books. Remaining space could go to a cafe, children's books and educational toys and games, and consumer electronic products. Borders may also seek to add used books, an area that Mr. Edwards said is doing well online.My wife and son went to the Preston Royal location this afternoon; spring break and all. And still they left with nothing -- not even the $20 stool on sale on the other side. Unlike when they go to the actual Half Price Books.
