Borders Closures Don’t Target Rhode Island Stores

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – The closure of 200 Borders stores nationwide has missed Rhode Island. The bookseller's three stores in the Ocean State are not on a list of stores scheduled to close in the next few weeks. The list was included in Borders' bankruptcy filing Wednesday.

The 40-year-old company is closing more than a third of its stores. It operates stores at the Providence Place mall in Providence, in Cranston and at T.F. Green Airport in Warwick.
