Murray and Logan stores to close in Borders bankruptcy

Borders was slow to get the message as the big-box retailer lost book, music and video sales to the Internet and others. As a result, it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Wednesday, and will close a third of its stores, including two in Utah.

Border plans to close by the end of April about 200 of its 642 stores, including Utah locations in Murray at 132 E. Winchester and in Logan at 1050 N. Main Street, costing about 6,000 of the company’s 19,500 employees their jobs. The location in Provo at 4801 N. University Ave. is not on the closure list. Salt Lake Tribune
