Goodbye Borders, Oxford Street

Although we prefer to frequent independent bookstores, Borders on Oxford Street was always a handy place for a quick free read of the music mags, and there was always a good selection of books in store.
When it first opened, we used to quite like the cafe too – it was a handy place for meetings – but after it turned into a ruddy Starbucks franchise, we went elsewhere.

Here’s some photos of what could be the last day of the store, with everything marked at half price.

Borders have said that the lease has now been sold to a ‘fashion retailer.’
