Final day arrives for Borders' flagship store in downtown Ann Arbor
Forty years after it was forged, downtown Ann Arbor's unique connection to Borders will be severed today.
Borders will close its flagship store today, carving a 40,000-square-foot hole at the corner of Liberty and Maynard streets and leaving downtown Ann Arbor without a Borders store for the first time in 40 years.

The original Borders store was located steps away from the current store in an 800-square-foot space on South State Street.
In the mid-1990s, the store moved to a former Jacobson's department store along Liberty Street — and that's where the store remains today.
