Border's Books in trouble

This article indicates that B&N may be a potential buyer, but there is no doubt that the venerable Border's chain is running out of time.

I wonder what this will mean for the Border's store on University.

Most people go to the book store, check out the book and if they like it, they will buy it online at a much lower price. The sign of times.

When the old Varsity Theatre was converted into the Borders book store, I seem to remember that structurally the building could be converted back into a theatre if the bookstore moved out. That was a long time ago, but there was a lot of controversy at the time about losing the theatre facility, and some discussion of making it a performing arts center. Does anyone else remember this?
