It?s been a while since I?ve done the grab box for 10.00 and now I remember why. A grab box is a mixed artist mixed interest assortment of vinyl record albums of 33 1/3 rpm. I just purchased two grab boxes from half price books from the N Lamar location and ended up with total junk from prayer sermons to the Kennedy first family presidential albums. Not a single current to the last forty years album. The best album in the two boxes of junk was music from Doctor Zhivago to give you an idea. Needless to say I?m making a donation run to Goodwill in the immediate future. If you?re looking for junk albums or music to irritate your roommates neighbors or put the last nail in the coffin on your marriage the garb box is the perfect pick otherwise stay away. In the past I haven?t done so bad in comparison like the time I got 20 Christopher Cross albums all of the same album title and Andy Williams whole entire collection (I?m not into Andy Williams but at least I know who he is) and the staff there is a helpful bunch from I don?t know to I?m going to break. The term you get what you pay for could be applied except you don?t really even get that. For 20.00 dollars you get to help them haul out there trash and pay them.

Pros: Apparantly a Good place to get rid of your junk records

Cons: Apparantly a good place to buy junk records

I was extremely dissappointed with the customer service at the buying counter. I have a hard time understanding how a book that is being sold on the shelf in the store for $60 would only be worth $1. Are we all just too stupid and desperate to deserve enough respect to get a decent amount of money for our used books? I would rather take my books out and watch them burn than ever sell anything here.

Cons: humiliatingly low buy-back prices
