NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – Shoppers are flocking to the Borders bookstore on 57th St. for big discounts.

Last week, Borders bookstores filed bankruptcy which means approximately 200 stores will close. Among them, the flagship New York City store at 57th and Park Ave.

“I got the New Yorker for forty percent off!” said one shopper.

WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola spoke with shoppers who say they’re in the 57th St. Borders every week or during a lunch hour from work to check out what’s new or pick up a magazine.

One mom told Kosola she likes to bring her 5-year-old daughter to Borders to introduce her to reading.

“She hops from books to books and says ‘See Mom, this is the book I want!’,” said one shopper.

An experience this mom says doesn’t exist online.
