The Borders Group book and music store chain, which filed for bankruptcy in February, is trimming more stores to try to stay alive. Twenty-eight more outlets are now slated for closure, including two in Massachusetts. But for now, the Borders at the Loop in Methuen and the smaller outlet at the Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem, N.H. have escaped the bankruptcy cuts.
The additional stores that will be closed in Massachusetts are in Braintree and Shrewsbury. A total of 228 stores nationwide will now be shuttered.
