Borders adds 2 more Hawaii stores to closure list


The Borders book stores at Waikele Center in Waipahu and at Maui Marketplace in Kahului have been added to the list of 200 stores that will close in the coming weeks.

The two stores, slated for closure by late May, will close not long after the Kailua-Kona and Lihue stores shut down next month, as previously announced.

The Michigan-based books-and-music retailer is in the throes of Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization.

The state Department of Labor and Industrial Relations Workforce Development Office had not yet received notice of the closures or impact to employees, so no information about the number of affected employees was available.
