JEFFREY BROWN: Next, the last chapter for one of the country's biggest bookstore chains.
For Borders, it is, yes, the end of the story. In February, the book chain filed for bankruptcy, hoping to reorganize and stay in business. But, today, its representatives were in court with a plan to liquidate its remaining 399 stores beginning as early as tomorrow. More than 10,000 employees will lose their jobs as a result.
WOMAN: Getting the news today, it is upsetting. We tried. We tried. We gave it our best.
