Borders closures include stores in Glendale, Century City, Pasadena

February 16, 2011 | 10:35 am


The list of 200 Borders stores slated for closure includes 33 in California, with 11 in the Los Angeles area. Stores in Century City, Glendale and Pasadena are on the list.

The Borders Group Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing's Appendix A includes a list of stores across the nation that are set to close. Los Angeles area stores that appear on the list are located in:

Century City
La Habra
Long Beach - Bellflower Blvd.
Long Beach - S. Pine Ave.
Pico Rivera
Rolling Hills Estates

The largest Borders stores set to close are in Glendale and Pasadena; both have about 40,000 square feet of selling space. That's a lot of books.

As of this writing, it appears that Borders stores in Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Arcadia, Torrance, El Segundo and Northridge will stay open under the plan.
