The bookstore was amazing, very spacious. And it has everything I'm looking for. This blows borders right out of the water, and no wonder, locally owned businesses are the best. They are always more dedicated to what they are selling. :)

I like the personal attention that you receive with Piece of Mind. You are treated like one of the family. You are remembered for coming back. Your are not just a customer that come's in and buy's book's and leave's. I have been buying book's from Piece of Mind for several year's and Andi remember's my daughter and her reading level's. These are the small family owned business that the large same priced store's are putting out of business.

I have found everything I need & more at Piece of Mind books.
Their prices are the same as Borders, but the atmosphere is way more friendly, and homey.
My money goes to Piece of Mind books.

I have been shopping Piece of Mind since its original location in a crowded little house farther north on Route 159. I may only go in there four or five times a year, but Andi greets me by name and she knows my kids. She cares. If I want to plop down in the floor and browse quietly, I will be undisturbed. If I am in a hurry and know exactly what I want, I don't have to walk beyond the front desk where someone will always cheerfully fetch exactly what I need. It amazes me that they can put the book in my hands faster than the clerks at Big Box Books can log into their computers. Ok, I don't get the 10% off the week's bestsellers or whatever. But, every year without fail I am sent a generous coupon for a loyal customer sale on the day of my choice to do my holiday shopping. A very fair reward that keeps me coming back year after year for the joy of it. Good place, good times and the best collection of hilarious sticky-notes on the planet.

You are correct when you say there is no comparison between large chain bookstores and this one. Sure, it isn't expansive and cold...it may not have every single book at the touch of a keystroke...what it does have is warmth, variety and is unique in every way. I do believe the people that work there are actually readers too!!! Imagine that! If you're in a rush and you don't want to take the time to browse happily through every nook and cranny, then this isn't the place for you...but if you want to feel good about supporting a local business and enjoying the experience at the same time...this is the place.

Sadly, in this day and age, locally-owned businesses are becoming a thing of the past. The reason is clear, when you visit Piece of Mind - it just cannot compare. When you can sit in your home and order books online, or request a title and pick it up at your local bookstore, Piece of Mind has no draw. The store seems overcrowded and disorganized, and they just cannot house the diverse selection like a larger warehouse setup. It is far too difficult to navigate with kids in tow, so we don't go out of our way anymore to stop there.

Non-chain bookstores are a rare breed these days, and for that reason we support Piece of Mind Books whenever we can. Although the store appears a little disorganized and unkempt, the employees are always willing to help a customer find what he or she needs. They have a good sized children's area and quite a selection of unusual cards and small gift items. Authors are known to come in for signings, and, if you sign up, the store will notify you of new releases.
