Borders does not support our prisoners!

Written By: Gary on April 19, 2004 One Comment

Did you know that Borders book stores (B&M) will not ship to prisons? I found that out today when I was greeted by a plethora of bright signs behind the checkout counter (okay, it was only a half dozen). When I asked “why?”, I was told it’s a very common request and instead of telling people they thought they’d just post the signs up so they wouldn’t even ask.

I’m seriously looking for some feedback on this one if anyone has some information to clarify this.

    I work at a place that occasionally sends books to prisoners. Every prison has a hundred and one regulations about what kind of packages they will accept. There are no uniform rules, and a good number of the items we send are returned to us. It’s a huge pain to keep track of it all, and although I don’t know why Borders won’t send books to prisoners, that might have something to do with it.
