Borders, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in February, now says it will close its store in Vermont’s biggest city.
Spokeswoman Mary Davis says the store on Church Street in Burlington had been trying to renegotiate its lease to get a lower rent but was unable to. No date has been given for the closing.
The chain has already closed 226 of its 642 stores, and will close the Burlington store as part of a small second wave of closings.
Davis tells the Burlington Free Press the fate of its 31 workers is unknown.
