Until Borders makes a public statement this issue will remain unresolved

Annemarie Boswell: I just got off the phone with Borders corporate office and was told that they will be returning any books they can to the distributor. Some books will not be returnable and those distributors often require the destruction of the books, usually with the return of the front cover as verification of said destruction. I told them about this Facebook page and asked that they work with the distributors of such books to get them into the hands of the needy such as schools, shelters and soldiers. I was told that they would do all they could to see that accomplished. I made it clear to them that as a long time customer I would be shopping elsewhere should they destroy so many books in such an economy. (December 3, 2009 at 11:23am)

Donate, Not Dumpster: Annemarie, thanks for your support and for caring enough to call Borders. Regardless of what you were told, until Borders makes a public statement pledging to work with their distributors to find a way to donate instead of destroying the unsold books, this issue will remain unresolved.

Annemarie Boswell: I agree. That's why everyone needs to contact them and let them know how they feel. (December 3, 2009 at 11:59am)
