Borders' Bankruptcy Claims Two Dallas Stores. A Decision Points Firesale Can't Be Far Behind.

A month ago, Robert offered a lamentation for what's become of this Borders in Preston Royal, where the kids books had been replaced by board games, the music section was two CD bins, and an entire wall had succumbed to an especially invasive strain of Decision Points.

Today, though, along with the news that Borders has, at long last, filed for Chapter 11, comes a list of around 200 store closings planned around the country -- including a pair of the chain's Dallas outposts: the McKinney Avenue spot in West Village and, yes, Preston Royal too.

According to an announcement at the site dedicated to the retailer's reorganization, you'll have till the end of April to pay your respects to any of the music racks, checkout lines or bathroom stalls where you've made your memories these many years.
