When Borders shut its doors in 2011, book lovers in Singapore cried in anguish. I remember spending a lot of time at its Wheelock Place outlet browsing through its great collection of books so when I read that a Borders bookstore will be opened in Jurong by year end...forgive me, but I did a little jump of joy.
Popular Holdings had announced that they had acquired the Borders brand for Singapore but frankly, I didn't thought much of it. I certainly didn't thought they would open a Borders store so fast! Now some people may complain that Jurong is too far from the city central but who cares?
Borders is back. Welcome back Borders!
