Two Long Island Borders stores will be closing following a bankruptcy announcement by the company on Wednesday.
The Borders in Commack on Veteran’s Highway and the Borders in Westbury on Old Country Road are two of 200 Borders locations closing across the country.
The stores chosen to be closed were those who are not doing well financially.
Borders has more than 600 store locations and the 200 closings reflect a 30 percent cut.
According to the bankruptcy filing, Borders has debt in the amount of $1.29 billion. The company’s assets were listed as $1.28 billion.
