Kobo eReader now $60 at closing Borders

There are reports all over the web that you can now find the Kobo Wifi for $60, which is about $40 off of existing retail. Note that this price is only good at the 200 or so Borders stores which were on the first list of dead stores. The price will be higher at any regular Borders store and the price may not have been reduced yet at the 28 store closures which were announced last week.

P.S. Yes, the sign says it’s $80, but that is a little white lie on the part of the liquidators. It’s selling for $99 at any regular Borders store in the US, not $149.
