Liquidating a non profit bisexual dating site reno
The liquidation, which Borders announced shortly after p.m., means that the 10,700 people who still work for Borders — including about 400 at its Ann Arbor headquarters — will lose their jobs.The Ann Arbor-based chain’s 399 remaining stores will be closed quickly, with liquidation sales starting as soon as Friday — although the company said in a court filing late today that 30 leases could still be sold off.And it’s the biggest gut punch for the local economy since Pfizer announced its departure from Ann Arbor four years ago.

"The handwriting was on the wall for this company two years ago." Although Borders is a shadow of its former self — it once employed some 1,800 workers at its corporate headquarters — it’s still a profoundly disheartening development for the local workforce.
