I have purchased books and souvenir from this store. The busy season seems to be summer, especially the week of the fourth of July and the weekend after Thanksgiving. As I got some good deals, the owner is brash and not friendly at all. Now the deals are decreasing, it appears that the owner is trying to get into the seconds new books market. They had a stock of really great deals for tee shirts and sweatshirts but the amounts are dwindling and I wonder if they will be available before long.
It appears that the books are half price of the cover price when you purchase them and when you return them but a hard cover you are actually being charged $5:00 for a book that is figured at $8:00 as a trade. As for paperbacks they trade you get 25% of the cover price for a trade. Can't get the amount of books you traded for what they give you. Only 1/2 the amount. Anyone out there who has a small business should know, you can't expect people to help you out for nothing or next to nothing. In this economy when you have plenty of money, you should take care of the people that help you. The customers who have been so loyal to you.

As a book store owner, I was very impressed with the
personal attention this store owner gave ME AS A
CUSTOMER! I was not treated like a customer at a "Bookstore chain" shoppe!

Please, do YOUR self a favor, and CHECK THIS PLACE OUT, and go with LOTS of time as you would LOVE these GREAT BOOKS!!
