In solidarity with your workers in Ann Arbor and Minneapolis, I will not be shopping at Borders (or Waldenbooks or until management reaches an acceptable agreement on a contract.

Thank you for contacting Borders about the strike at our downtown Ann Arbor store.

We appreciate your sharing your comments with us. We have included them with information presented to our executives for their review. We are currently at the negotiating table with our Ann Arbor store and hope to resolve the situation very soon.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions or comments.

Borders Customer Service
Drop them a line and express your support: Be sure to note your city and state as one of the things Borders has been trying to do is pretend the strike isn't even happening and responses from all over the country will show them it's not working.
