Sale signs are stuck up at Borders in Glasgow
Employees at branches of the Borders bookshop chain will work their last day on Thursday, Christmas Eve, following the company going into administration.
Stores in Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness have been trading for a final time.
Borders has suffered from increased competition from online retailers and supermarkets.
Across the UK, Borders employed 1,150 people in total. The chain went into administration last month.
Paul Rutherford, general manager at Borders in Inverness, said customers had told staff they were disappointed by the store's closure.
The branch employs 35 staff, but staff at a coffee shop, computer games sales counter and stationers on the same shop floor, but run by other companies, will also lose their jobs.
Mr Rutherford said: "The reason why we opened was because the catchment area is the size of Belgium.
"We get people from all over the Highlands and Islands, but also attract customers from as far east as Aberdeen."
He said the branch had made a profit since opening six years ago.
