Big, soulless chain versus plucky, independent shop. This well-worn theme in American commerce has been played out with music stores, big-box retailers and booksellers.

Well I never really knew the small independent stores. I was glad there was a Borders in my neighborhood. Now where will you go to have a good book store experience. In Chicago if you live on the North side you may be able to enjoy the coffee shops and all the nice little stores. But what about working families, and the real people? Sorry to see Borders go. Where will we go from here. Walmart taking over, Borders decreasing. A sad day for America.
