Goodbye Borders, Oxford Street
Flagship bookstore closes
(Photos © urban75, Saturday 25th July 2009)
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 from Saturday 25th July 2009 - could be the last weekend of the store - with everything marked at half price.
Borders have said that the lease has now been sold to a 'fashion retailer.'
