Waldenbooks/Borders Closing in Lawton Area: Final 2 Weeks; Where to Get Books Now?

I’m an avid reader so I’ve been sad to hear that the only big name bookstore in the Lawton area is closing. For the next 2 weeks you can find prices at 60-80% off original prices at Waldenbooks in Central Mall as they prepare to close. I made it up there to take a look around a few weeks back but I wasn’t impressed with prices enough to stock up just yet. I hope to make it up there again in the coming weeks but it’s made me start to wonder; Where will we get books now?

I know there is a Hastings on Sheridan and even a couple of trade book stores on Gore but where do you get most of your books these days? I haven’t gotten my hands on the Kindle yet but I would love to hear your thoughts on them if you’ve tried one. I love Half Price Books in OKC but I don’t make it up there enough to keep my book habit satisfied. How do you satisfy your love of books locally besides the library and Walmart?

Borders Going Out of Business including WaldenBooks

It’s sad, but true. Border’s is going out of business and I received an email saying that all Border’s Bucks need to be used by the end of the month (7/31).

They are starting sales today (7/22) at 40% off online and in stores. You will be able to use your Gift Cards during this event and Borders Rewards members can still enjoy any of their additional savings until August 5th.

This is a great opportunity to stock up on any of your favorite books but don’t wait too long to see sales get lower, the inventory may not include any of your favorites by that time.

Farewell Borders, you fed me and my mother’s book addiction well over the years.

Borders Coupon 30% off Single Item

Borders has a second coupon this week that is for 30% off the list price of a single item good thru 7/18. See coupon for exclusions and find it to print HERE.

You can also find a coupon good for 20% off any Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or Horror books good thru 7/18 HERE.

2 New Borders Book Coupons

There are 2 new Borders book coupons that are valid at WaldenBooks. 20% off HERE or 30% off HERE.

The first one is for 20% off the list price of your entire purchase. This will discount any item’s list price by 20%. Those items already discounted 20% will not be discounted further. This coupon expires 7/14 and can be found to print HERE.

The second is for 30% off Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or Horror books excluding eBooks and Kids Books. This would be a good one if you are missing any books from some of your beloved series. The coupon discount makes them lower than Walmart and remember that once they’re no longer ‘new’ you can no longer find them there anyway. I need a few more of the Sookie Stackhouse Series since mom wouldn’t let me have hers. This coupon expires 7/18 and you can find it to print HERE.

You could always shop online and choose in-store pickup for free shipping if you don’t think you can make it to the mall in time to use this coupon.

Borders 40% off Any One Book thru 7/11

Borders has a great coupon for 40% off any one book valid thru 7/11.
You have to be a Borders Rewards (free or paid) member to use this coupon.
Print this coupon HERE. Valid at WaldenBooks.

Borders 20% off Entire Purchase 6/28-6/30

Borders has another coupon offer good thru 6/30 for 20% off your entire order. This coupon works a little differently in that if you have an item that is already marked down 20% it will take the lower of the 2 prices as your total for that item. So, this coupon will work on sale items but anything already on sale for 20% or more will not be marked down any lower. You can find the coupon HERE.

Remember you must be a Border’s Rewards Member (free to join) to use this coupon and that WaldenBooks in Central Mall Lawton is a Borders affiliate.

Borders 40% off Coupon Valid thru 6/13

Borders has yet another great coupon good thru this weekend (6/10-6/13) that you can print HERE. I’m glad that their multiple store closings didn’t affect our store in Central Mall. WaldenBooks is a Borders affiliate so you can print your coupon to use in store, or you can shop from the comfort of your living room (just use the online code on the coupon) and have them ship it for free to the store for quick pick-up. This store is smaller than the Borders I’m used to in OKC so this was great to find out when they didn’t have something in stock for me last Christmas.

Borders 30% Coupon Thru June 9th; Harry Potter items 20% off Coupon thru June 13th

Borders has another coupon offer good thru June 9th for 30% off one item that you can find HERE. There are a lot of hot summer reading titles coming soon that you could use this coupon to pre-order if you like. Have you been reading Janet Evanovich? I can’t wait to get my hands on Smokin’ Seventeen!

There is also a great coupon for 20% off select Harry Potter items for that hardcore Harry Potter fan of yours. You can find the coupon HERE, along with a list of those select items at the bottom of the page good thru June 13th. Might be a good time to pick up a box set you may have wanted to gift someone later this year. The final installment of the movie will be out later this summer!
