Possible Buyer for Borders Stores

Today news emerged that the Gores Group, a private equity firm, might be looking to buy as many as half of Borders' remaining stores out of bankruptcy, according to The Wall Street Journal. When the chain first filed for Chapter 11, many retail real estate insiders felt that the Borders locations slated for closing were good enough to be snapped up by alternate users.

It's clear that the Gores Group, which according to some sources specializes in distressed properties, thinks Borders' real estate is worth something as well.
