Bankrupt Borders Group Inc said it has canceled its auction and will sell itself to a group of liquidators.
Borders announced the decision on Monday, saying it was not able to reach a deal for a going-concern sale to salvage its 400 remaining stores and 11,000 jobs.
A liquidation group led by Hilco Merchant Resources will begin liquidations as early as Friday, Borders said in a statement. The bookseller will seek bankruptcy court approval of the closing procedures at a hearing set for Thursday.
Borders Bookstore Will Eliminate 11,000 Jobs, Close 400 Remaining Stores

I have friends who work at a nearby Borders and I can imagine how hard it must be to lose their jobs admist a 9.2% unemployment rate. Would it be unethical of me to buy books in bulk during their closing sales?

wow, how sad. the borders in memphis (there's only been one there ever since i moved there in late 94) has always been pretty busy. but that's what i thought of the one in nashville near the hotel i always stay at, and i discovered in july they closed.
