This is one of my favorite bookstores to buy children's books for gifts, because the selection in the Clearance books has been varied, good quality, and good prices. This store is a bit difficult to find the first time there, but worth the trouble. When I needed help finding a book for myself, the sales clerks were helpful and friendly. A friend and I have gone there on several occasions, gotten coffee, looked over books we considered buying , and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere.
I like Borders Books; however, for whatever reason, I find myself always going to Barnes and Noble. You do have to fight mall traffic to get there. Plus, I feel like Barnes and Noble is bigger for some reason. I do think Borders has a great selection. Plus they do put out occassional coupons, which is always nice.
PROS: Good selection
CONS: Location not great, seems smaller than Barnes and Noble
Not too much to make this book store stand out from the others. And, at this location you have to fight through mall traffic to get there. The prices are average and their selection is pretty good, but I don't really find a reason to shop here. Also, they don't seem to ever have enough people to check you out.
This bookstore is always clean, and very well stocked with fantastic book choices. The customer service is not as good as Barnes and Noble. A few times while in the store, the only person I could find to help me was the cashier, and there was a long line. They do have great prices, and sometimes a 25% off coupon can be printed off the internet and used instore.
