When Borders announced liquidation last week, there was a brief glimmer of hope that thirty of the stores might still be saved under a deal with Books-A-Million. That hope is now gone, with BAM’s CEO telling newspapers that his company couldn’t reach a satisfactory deal with Borders in time (some of the stores had already started going-out-of-business sales).

However, BAM may independently lease some of the store locations Borders leaves behind, like the former Borders store at Huntington Mall in Barboursville, West Virginia.
