In a stunning move, Books-A-Million announced they will be opening 41 new bookstores in December. Earlier this year the book store chain closed 21 stores. According to their press release, several of the new stores will be in vacated Border’s locations.
Terrance G. Finley, President of Books-A-Million said in a statement: “We have been working diligently in the last several months to find ways to keep a number of former Borders store locations in operation under the Books-A-Million brand, and these store openings are the culmination of that work. These 41 stores will also benefit local economies by providing sustaining jobs in and around our new locations. To Books-A-Million, it’s about forging a lifetime partnership with all bookstore lovers.”
