A Haven For
Book Exchange Program
The majority of our inventory is obtained through our Book Exchange Program. By bringing in your slightly used books (we prefer fiction in paperback and non-fiction in either paperback or hardback) you can earn store credit towards your purchases of USED books. You do not need an appointment unless you are bringing in a very large collection. We do not accept antique books, old textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines, musty or mildew-smelling books.
If we are able to accept your books, you will receive 25% of the publisher’s price of the book in store credit. When you use this credit, it is applied towards half of the total cost of your purchases. For example, if a book is marked as $9.99, our store price would be $5.00. If you use your credit to purchase this book, it will cost you $2.50. Unused credit stays in your account. Credit may be used by your immediate family.
*Just to clarify, books are never evenly exchanged. When your purchases are tallied, you will always be responsible for paying for a portion of your purchases (this is how we pay our bills!).
We have partnered with a national textbook buyback company. Bring in your recent college textbooks-recent by a year, maybe two and earn some cash. We cannot accept books that are water damaged, workbooks that are filled in or teacher editions. We ask that you bring your school ID or driver license in with you. *We do not sell textbooks.
