Borders nears its final chapter

After 40 years in the book-selling business, Borders will be closing all of its stores in the next few weeks.

As part of Borders' bankruptcy, 11,000 employees nationwide will soon be out of a job, some of them in the Hudson Valley.

Some Mount Kisco residents say the closing of the once-powerful book-selling giant is a sign of the times.

"They're competing with the Internet," says Joe Davi, of Mount Kisco. "Maybe their time is past."
