Books without Borders

Borders to close stores in Monroeville, Whitehall,(that's Whitehall somewhere out East), East Liberty, and Bethel Park according to bankruptcy filing:

So about half their stores in the region it looks like.  Add in the Joseph Beth closure (someone didn't get that memo) and it's the great Bookalypse. Check the AP style manual, that's what it is called.  What's a respectable TIF to do these days?


and I fully admit I stole the title there from Tweeter YaJagoff. Just too good to pass up.

I knew the East Liberty one was in trouble. I'm there often enough. I had thought that the Monroeville one store might make it.

I guess one would not presume I was talking about TIFfany's?  More this definition.

And it's now going on two years since B&N closed in Squirrel Hill.
