Hmmmm, Ben M.
Have you visited the shop? They really do have their return policy posted everywhere! It seems impossible to miss. I think that their store policy is perfectly lenient, and it is much like ones that you will find at textbook shops across the nation! I've never had a difficult time returning textbooks, as long as it is within the specified time period. Consumers have to follow rules sometimes too, its part of life.
Anyway, the new shop at 150 campus road is really great! Good job with the expansion, guys. I'm thrilled that I get to shop here more now, and not just for my textbooks.
Staff is friendly and helpful, selection is well put together! cute bookshop! Highly recommend!

I just saw them on The People's Court!

AVOID BUYING TEXTBOOKS THERE!!! They WILL NOT give refunds!! Customer service BLOWS to boot!

Note to owners: very bad media coverage...you should've given her a refund in front of all the viewers. For goodness sake, the woman had the book shrinkwrapped! Terrible business policy. I shall be spreading the word.

This is a tiny store, it's true. But it's got a really, really good selection. And you can browse forever. I mean, name another store in Brooklyn that carries MALLEUS MALEFICARUM or even knows what you're talking about. Also, totally hot staff.

A really small, quiet, darkly lit book store located about a half a block from Brooklyn College. The selection is very poor. The two times I needed a book they either didn't carry it or they were out of stock. The staff took a while to search for a textbook I needed and when they returned they came back with the wrong edition. You can sell textbooks here, but they don't give you a good price for them. If your really desperate for a book and no other book store is near you then I would check here, if not hop on a train and go to Barnes and Nobles.

I'm not really crazy about this branch of Shakespeare & Company. I don't think they have much selection at all. They do have a lot of books on sex for some reason if that's what you're looking for, but I wasn't. They have hardly any children's books. The place is kind of dark and gloomy looking, and very small. They often open after 12:00. I used to work near there and would want to go over on my lunch hour and they were still closed. I'd rather go to a big chain book store.

Message from Shakespeare & Co

Shakespeare & Co. Hillel is one of the few independent bookstores left in the south of Brooklyn. We are both a general bookstore and a purveyor of college textbooks (mostly for Brooklyn College, but we sometimes coincidentally have books for other schools). Anything we don't have in stock, we can order, as long as the book's still in print. We also do textbook buybacks all year round.

 

Wait, you're the expert.
