When did companies decide that it is okay to just throw away everything? Does H&M and Wal-mart think that all those freezing homeless people in NY wouldn’t want the clothes they are slated to throw away? Angry that you didn’t make your buck off the merch so you just want to throw it out? My mama told me “waste not, want not”.
I am ashamed of Borders for using a dumpster to get rid of their books that haven’t been sold. I am appalled and I will no longer be visiting the store even though it is in an easy location for me. Barnes & Noble have better business practices and I will continue to visit my indie stores.
I know my paltry $150 bucks a week or every two weeks won’t mean much to Borders but there are so many different ways to get rid of those books. Donate them to Soldier’s Angels. At my last check there are over 4,000 Soldiers waiting for books to read.
Say no to Borders and these practices!
