Borders to close two more Hawaii stores

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Two more Borders book stores, one at Waikele Center in Waipahu and the other at the Maui Marketplace in Kahului, will close by late May.

These two, in addition to the Kailua-Kona and Lihue locations, are the latest in a list of 200 stores that are projected to close in the coming weeks, as the book and music retailer goes through bankruptcy reorganization.

The state Department of Labor and Industrial Relations Workforce Development Office could not say how many employees will be effected by the closures.
