Brookwood Place Borders to close

Borders is closing its Brookwood Place store on Peachtree Street NE.

The store was not meeting the company's business needs, spokesperson Mary Davis said. Its last day of sales is Feb. 11.

The store, as 1745 Peachtree St. NE, is just over four miles away from a Peachtree Road store in Buckhead.

Borders is also closing a Perimeter Village store at 4745 Ashford-Dunwoody Road Jan. 31. The company will have 12 Borders, Borders Express and Waldenbooks stores in metro Atlanta after the closings.

"We have a really strong footprint in the Atlanta area," Davis said.

The closing Peachtree Street store has 26 employees. Davis said the company will try to place many of them at other locations.
