With the latest rounds of delayed payments to vendors and landlords coupled with the reports that they are preparing for bankruptcy filings[1] for next week (6 January 2011 - 13 January 2011), things do not look good for Borders Group (NYSE:BGP). As others have noted, while they to tend to have the best selection in terms of books and "browse-ability" is one of the big pluses that a brick and mortar bookstore offers over Amazon (NYSE:AMZN), that it and of itself is not enough to make a sustainable business model and given that Barnes and Noble (NYSE:BKS) has been aggressively pursing the ebook market as of late, Borders may just prove to be too late to the game to recover.
