The Strongsville Borders is not on the list of stores slated to close as part of the company's reorganization under Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The only Cleveland-area store on the list are in Medina Grande Shops in Medina and Creekside Commons in Mentor.
The company announced this week it will close about 200 of its stores within the next several weeks. It has since listed potential closings, although a statement on its website says the list is not final.
The company said it would close its most under-performing stores.
A manager at the declined to comment Wednesday, referring questions to the Borders corporate office.
Strongsville Economic Development Manager Brent Painter said Strongsville would offer its services if it can help keep the store, 17200 Royalton Rd., open.
"We've told them we're here to help them with whatever they need," he said.
Borders is the nation's second-largest book retailer, behind Barnes & Noble. It operates 659 stores and employs about 20,000 full- and part-time workers.
