Borders, bye bye

Borders plans to close its Fremont and Union City stores along with 198 more as it heads into bankruptcy.

Get the entire closure list here.

In Union City, that leaves readers the public library.

In Fremont, you’ll still have homegrown Half-Priced Books in Pacific Commons, along with an Islamic bookstore on Peralta and a Christian bookstore on Sundale.
