Shop for books, music and more in a warm, relaxing and customer-friendly environment. – In Short
Originating in Ann Arbor, Mich., in 1971, this international bookstore chain is known for its vast selection of books, movies and music, as well as a comfortable atmosphere. Cozy chairs, scattered tables and music listening stations invite customers to explore and stay awhile. Book and music selections are tailored to the community, giving the shop a local feel. The knowledgeable staff and Title Sleuth inventory computer stations aid inquisitive shoppers.
den of thieves – DO NOT EVER hang out in the cafe in Borders at Downtown Crossing. I used to meet students there regularly for private lessons. One day I saw someone get their purse stolen (I didn't realize it until after the fact) and then just today I had my own wallet stolen. I even asked someone to watch my stuff for me while I went to the restroom. The jerks went on a shopping spree with my credit cards immediately after. They have a security guard who was totally useless the first time I reported seeing the lady's purse get stolen; I won't even bother to report to them that my wallet was stolen - they obviously don't care.
Not a cool place unless you want to get robbed!
caffeine fix – Borders' hazelnut ice coffee is a guaranteed zing on a summer morning. i drink mine with just skim milk and the flavor is fabulous.
