Book Store Name

An old Borders bookstore in Northern Michigan has a new name.

And they celebrated a special grand-opening today.

The old borders on south airport road in traverse city, is now a “books-a-million” store.

And Traverse City's books-a- million is the first one to open anywhere in Michigan.

The Borders that used to be there went out of business back in July.

The district manager at books-a-million says, they were able to re-hire many of borders' employees.

And they're happy to be opening their doors in Northern Michigan.

The district manager says the traverse city store won't be the only books-a-million in Michigan for long, the chain is planning to expand.
