Closing down Borders sign: "No toilets, try Amazon"

An anonymous wag at a closing-down Borders store in Chicago put up this sign advising customers where they should try to find toilet facilities. It's funny, but if Borders' best pitch is, "We have less selection than Amazon, but you should see our toilets!" then I think I might be able to put my finger on at least one of the firm's problems. For one thing: if you've got an address to which Amazon might deliver a book, presumably there is a working toilet at that same address, one that is even more convenient than the toilet Borders used to let you use while shopping there.
