The original Borders in Evanston on Orington has been leased and is now under construction to become a Bright Horizons daycare center. This borders location has been vacant since 2003 when it relocated to the intersection of Church and Maple streets. Meanwhile, in the interwebs, Barnes & Noble bought the defunct Borders.com URL.
