Borders: Trading as normal with closing down sales

It might just be me, but if an administrator is "trading as normal", wouldn't that make a closing down sale at Borders a little soon?

Unless, of course, the claims of 'still searching for buyers' are little more than sops to try and keep the staff turning up during the wind-down period. After all, you can't hold a closing down sale unless you're actually closing down. Perhaps administrators MCR should call it a giving-up sale.
