Borders Bookcases Still Have Jobs

The bookstore chain may have collapsed, but Borders bookcases are still getting work, at least here in Los Angeles. TV Guide‘s Michael Schneider has spotted several while book shopping, as he notes on his blog Franklin Avenue:

Look carefully at used bookstores around town, and the Borders shelving is popping up all over the place. We mentioned back in June that downtown’s The Last Bookstore uses the old Borders fixtures (nicely refinished) — and now, as seen above, the new discount Crown Books store in Burbank also relies on those Borders bookcases.

At least someone in this troubled economy can find work. Even if they are inanimate objects.
