All new Books etc site goes in for repair after less than two days
The dormant Books etc name had disappeared along with its Borders parent brand in late 2009, but a company called Capital Organisation bought the Books etc name, website and Borders' marketing database in January, two months after Borders went into administration.
The new site launched on Tuesday but users complained about slow search results and problems registering on the site. Now the whole thing has been taken offline while various problems are addressed.
A holding page currently reassures customers that “Any purchases made since we launched the site on Monday 22nd February will be honoured and any new registrations made will also have been logged ok.”
Very professional. Watch this space…
