On Monday, July 18th, the official word came down: Borders hadn't found a buyer with a going-concern bid, so the group of liquidators that had put in a bid would be taking over to close out the stores beginning that Friday. Despite all the bad management and questionable decisions that had taken place over the last six or seven (or maybe eight) years, I couldn't help but remember what had made it such a great bookstore and such a great company to work for, once upon a time.

The day after the liquidation was announce, the store was swamped. Most people were nice, and nearly everyone was buying.

The day before the liquidation began, I was experiencing some trepidation. Here's my morning entry.

And, my evening entry, in which my fears are borne out.

July 22 was the first day of Borders liquidation sale, and the only title I could think of for my post was POW! BAM!

And the fallout the next day was epic. Here's the Picture Edition of the Liquidation Diary.
