Books-A-Million Begins Moving Into Former Borders Stores

Despite the fact that Books-A-Million’s offer to acquire 30 Borders stores fell through, BAMM is getting ready to open new stores in former Borders locations in the South. Last week, the company reported that it would be opening a location in a former Borders store in Charlotte, NC.

Today, the company announced that it will be opening a new store in Sumter, South Carolina, in the former Borders location at the Sumter Mall. This will be the 233rd BAMM store nationwide and 15th in South Carolina. It is tentatively scheduled to open on August 25.

Like others in the chain, the BAMM store will sell Barnes & Noble’s Nook eReading devices.
