Waldens Stores Become Borders Express
In Some Markets
March 28, 2005

The Wall Street Journal has reported that Borders Group is converting some Waldenbooks stores to Borders Express stores. According to the article, 37 stores were converted last year, including locations in Ann Arbor, Portland, Philadelphia, and Hawaii. While most conversions were done in markets where the company was remodeling its Borders stores, a few were done in markets the company deemed "strategically important," such as Detroit and Cleveland.

The new store colors match the new Borders colors, and the mix includes music and video products as well as books.

Prices have been brought in line between the two chains; stores in both now price all bestsellers at 30% off.

I wonder if that's what is to become of the one in our mall. It's closing down, but I don't know why.

over-sensitive my ass. you're just plain fucking disrespectful. if you don't care about a post or topic, here's an idea: how about you just don't fucking hit reply? move along and de-rail some other thread with your nonsense. are you so damned important that everyone on the board must post things of interest to you? no. i think not. and i agree with sapph, people like you make this place miserable.

I guess my questions would be: What is the point of the picture? Do you think it's funny, or did you just want to be an asshole?

I mean, I admit that I was thinking pretty much the same thing, but I didn't feel the need to make the op feel bad about it.

Jojomanzo? He was just as immature as the rest of us, so don't start that.

I loved the guy, but I call bullshit on this.

So. No more Waldenbooks then. Fine by me.
I used to have a membership thingy with them, but they never mailed me my $5 off coupons like they were supposed to.
Good riddance! :dead:

Word. JoJo was cool. And the fact that this girl drops his name as a couple together that dont post anymore cause the Bendis board is to inmature makes me think this is the gayest response ever..

I suppose it was for humor. Generally shit like that comes my way and I chuckle and when I throw shit like that outwards people chuckle, I hadn't read the manual with these people, hence the seeming faux pas.

Whatever.

The waldens by me were always shitty compared to Borders. Hopefully that will change.

Sure, I get that. It's just that, if you were trying to be funny and someone was upset by, it, why not just apologize instead of saying "fuck you!"?

Because I resent the implication that it was out of malice in the first place. Plus, I'm evil. My middle name is misery.

The nearest Waldenbooks to my house is managed by this guy I used to date and he's bitter, so I have to drive way out of my way to the nearest books store.


Maybe this will solve that.

my point, which has obviously been missed, is that you (and those like you) who think every post or topic on this board should be of significance to them, are the ones who need to get over themselves. it's not funny or clever to lame post stock photos with mildly witty sayings.

Your making an awfully ambitious inference when you say that I feel that every post here should be significant to me. It was a fucking joke. You have made a large mountain out of a molehill.


Again, get the fuck over yourself. I'm sure the poster, Jaypee, who's your boyfriend if I'm not mistaken, knew it was a joke. A joke. Hahaha, you don't have to laugh.
