Potential bad news for the most awesome bookstore in Indy: Borders is looking for someone to sublease their historic downtown space. I don't live or work downtown, but I have relished a few visits to this unique store, which was built as a bank in 1908.
This, of course, is just a side-effect of the bad times the chain is having--as well as the retail climate in general. I would hate to see this store close, but my gut tells me it's inevitable.
Sure, sure, there's a location near my office in Castleton, and another near my home that is state-of-the-art. But Indy needs something nice like this at one of its "marqee intersections." If it leaves, what will come in its place?
