The Wall Street Journal reports that Borders has added 28 more stores to its list of 200 closings it plans as part of its bankruptcy filing last month.
The Tacoma and Federal Way stores now will close in May 2011 according to a company list. That brings the number of stores closing in Washington to four. The Gig Harbor and Lynnwood locations will close in April 2011.
Borders said DJM Realty, a national real estate firm, will “manage the disposition” of its closed properties.
The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in February. It said then it planned to close a third of its 642 stores nationwide. With this latest announcement, Washington will go from 14 stores to 10, with the Puyallup location the only one left in Pierce County.
