The Borders Group announced on Saturday that it would close about 200 mall stores in January, while keeping its 130 remaining mall stores open. The company provided a full list of the stores to be shuttered. The closures do not affect Borders' superstores or seasonal mall kiosk business. 1,500 jobs, most of which are part-time, will be lost with the closures. The company already closed 112 stores in the 2008 fiscal year, as well as an average of 66 stores a year between the 2001 and 2007 fiscal years.
