CHAMPAIGN — Shoppers can get up to 40 percent off inventory and furnishings as the Borders bookstore in Champaign begins a liquidation sale Friday.
The store, which opened at 9 a.m., was selling off not only merchandise including books, games, magazines, music, movies and calendars, but also store fixtures and other equipment.
No closing date has been announced for the Champaign store at 802 W. Town Center Blvd., but a press release from the liquidators stated “we expect this will be a short sale.”
The liquidation is being managed by a joint venture composed of Gordon Brothers Group, Hilco Merchant Resources, Great American Group, SB Capital Group and Tiger Capital Group.
All sales made are final.
Liquidators also stated that:
— Borders gift cards will be honored throughout the sale.
— Initially, Borders Rewards Plus members will continue to receive additional discounts on qualifying purchases.
— All existing Borders Bucks can be redeemed until they expire on July 31.
