The jerk chicken here is terrible. The spicing is tepid, the chicken skin flabby from being kept warm on a steam table.

If it wasn't labelled jerk chicken, you wouldn't guess that's what its supposed to be.

It was nice meeting you on that long line at the bkosotore. The bkosotore is always a great place to strike up a conversation (or take a date) and talk about the latest titles and get a coffee, but Borders will no longer be around to provide that and I am hoping the same fate does not come to Barnes and Noble.I read online months ago during the first set of closings that Borders actually had the opportunity, shortly after the tech boom, to team up with Amazon and be it's sole provider of books but Borders declined. They believed that it would be a detriment to the store sales and that the store would eventually go under because of the feeling that online sales can not match store sales. Online sales are going up every year and Borders didn't take up online sales until years later after Amazon struck out on their own and Barnes and Noble already had their internet sales website up and running. Borders was also the last to get on the e-books trend (which personally I am not a fan of. I like holding a book and relaxing instead of looking at screen like I do at work) and the company suffered there as well.The first set of store closings were of stores inside of malls and a lot of the Borders Express and Waldenbooks locations. The independent stores, that is to say the stores such as Bridgewater and Rockaway which are not part of the mall but outside of it, were to survive. They also kept trying to sell CD's which is old media. I struggle to find a music store anymore but Borders has had a large section devoted to that media. It made them unique at first but began to be a toxic asset after 2003 with the beginnings of the iPod.What caused this final liquidation was that a creditor wouldn't give the company the loan to keep the remaining stores running.In short, it appears as though it was a long time coming.
