The Borders megastore on Queen St is closing in a few days (remember when it was going to kill Unity?).
New Whitcoulls/Borders owners the Norman family (who also own Farmers) are obviously looking to trim costs. But a large number of books to browse, and the cafe, were the only reasons to shop in a real-life bookstore. Give me the internet any day (though not the dysfunctional whitcoulls.co.nz) over the stingy stock in most shops.
