Borders Still Progressing…..

Smaller operating loss, increased cash flows and 45% less debt, all very good things. Shareholders, unfortunately for those who bought shares 2 years ago are still paying for the sins of past management. But, this marks the third consecutive quarter of very good improvement in a dismal operating environment.

Work still needs to be done on Borders.com. The site is sluggish and ordering can be difficult. Customer service is responsive BUT, Borders needs to eliminate the necessity to even need them which seems to be all too frequent. On the positive side, the site is very visually appealing and the Rewards Program and the affiliate relationships do offer tremendous savings. But, to bring it to the next level as a destination purchasing site…..it needs to be faster….much faster and the ordering glitches need to be eliminated.
