Who bought borders?
Similarly, you may ask, who owned Borders Books?
Borders was acquired in 1992 by Kmart, which had acquired mall-based book chain Waldenbooks eight years earlier.
Similarly, do Borders bookstores still exist? In 2015, Borders is but a memory. Their former stores only exist in abandoned real estate and horror stories swapped by former employees. Many Borders Bookstores still exist, including several in Kuala Lumpur, under the aegis of various foreign companies who had purchased them before the dissolution of Borders Group.
In this way, did Amazon Buy Borders?
Borders did not. Instead, it expanded its physical plant, refurbished its stores and outsourced its online sales operation to Amazon. "I'll go to Borders to find a book, and then I'll to go to Amazon to buy it, generally," customer Jennifer Geier says. With so many people going online to buy books, Borders lost out.
