PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Border bookstore chain has officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and is expected to close several local stores.

The company is planning to close about 200 stores total and cut 20,000 jobs.

In this area, the East Liberty, Monroeville and Bethel Park stores are all expected to close their doors.

Large book stores, like Borders, have struggled as more people purchase books online and use eReaders.
