ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Troubled book seller Borders Group says it will close 1 of 3 distribution centers in mid-July and eliminate the Middle Tennessee facility's 310 jobs.
The company released a statement late Wednesday saying the move is part of its long-term plan to become more efficient and cut costs. Borders said its strategic focus remains on refinancing its debt.
Centers in Carlisle, Pa., and Mira Loma, Calif., will absorb the La Vergne, Tennessee center's functions.
Workers at the distribution center slated to close learned of the decision Wednesday morning. They will be offered a severance package.
