I will never make the mistake of buying here again. I went there after I couldn't find a book online; right after the staff member saw the price list of the books I got online she asked me "where did you get those prices?" I told her online and her attitude changed she was rude and even ignored me, and after that she told me why don't you get all your books online (seriously?), their customer service is awful especially if they are very busy they will treat you like crap (if you can't handle the pressure get another job and not one that involves talking to people), after that I decided to go on a "quiet" day, this time they took forever to come out to the front and they had a bad attitude like I interrupted their lunch or something (lol) THEY ARE RUDE. And I wasn't the only one receiving this poor treatment, and "older" obnoxious guy, chewed out this Asian lady because he couldn??t understand her.

Anyway, besides the crappy customer service they are a rip-off, I can find books online for 20%, 30% and even 50% less(including expedite shipping) than used prices at PJ's , and their buyback is a joke, I bought a book new for $95, they wanted to give me $17 and of course they will sell it for $65 that's $48 profit from nowhere, I mean I know they have to make money and they have overhead but at least be fair with prices. Their refund policy is fishy, if you have the book for more than a week they won't take it back and they try to buy it as used, and their "last day to return/refund" is ridiculous, I understand they have to have it so people don't use the books and then try to return them but seriously, if you buy a book after the "deadline" YOU CANNOT RETURN IT so if you got the wrong book or they give you the wrong book (which happens since they have not knowledge about the books, they ask you "how does it look like?" and after all we are all humans we make mistakes, one of them buying at pj's ;-]) you are stuck with it, even if you buy it go to the car and come back, I think they should have at least a couple of days deadline on returning books after you buy them passed the "last day ro return/refund" .
I recommend you to get the syllabus (ask the teacher if she/he is going to use the book, sometimes they don't) and use ISBN number to buy/sell online, YOU WILL SAVE A LOT OF MONEY AND HEADACHES.

Seriously people I know they have better prices than the bookstore at campus (let's not go there) but a rip-off is a rip-off , working on retail I understand that "online" stores are killing normal ones but because of this we try to offer better service and competitive prices Pj's doesn't even try. Don't buy there maybe if they see that their business is going away they might change their awful policies. And by the way some friends actually go to the one on Frisco, they say they have better service at least)

Every semester I like to go here instead of to the bookstore on campus. (On campus does NOT need more money.) They sell me the wrong or incomplete books every semester. They also will not give out ISBNs anymore before you go in to make sure you get everything.

Do not do business with then.

This bookstore (on 75 and parker) is ridiculous! A staff member by the name of Mark was extremely rude and unhelpful. They sold me the wrong book and told me that they would exchange it but wouldn't be able to give me the full price for an exchange on a brand new book because it was a week past the exchange date. They wouldn't right their wrong and just give me a simple exchange. I've never been to a bookstore that was not helpful in correcting their own mistakes. I will never buy school books from this store again.

Was given the wrong book for my class. I called and a gentleman said he would pull the books I needed and have them ready which was really nice. I told him 3 times my classes, and saw the "Thinkwell"name across the book, so I did not look farther. I got home, unwrapped the $125 book to find out it is for the 2nd half of the course, that I am not taking. It is 2 days after the return date for a full refund plus I opened it. It is partially my fault, but not happy with PJ's and or their book return policy on this. I am going to call them today to see if there are any options for me. I really don't have another $125 to get the correct book.

Interiors, exteriors, parking lots, book shelves etc and everything is pathetic here. Nothing is worth mentioning at this place. They have some good collections of books but they will be gone as soon as they come to their shelves. So this place will be back to the pathetic basic state once all these books are gone. I guess there are only ten parking spots for this book store.

Although this place is convenient and has most of the books available but prices are high and return policy is unknown? Anyways if you cant find a book elsewhere, this is your last case resort.

PROS: convenient, textbooks always available
CONS: prices simply too high

I went to the bookstore to buy a used book for the collin county community college course I was enrolled in at the time. I was immediately helped by the staff which was nice, however, it seemed the reason for the fast service was because they wanted me out of there than wanting to really help me! I asked about return policies and the employee gave me a little attitude. The prices are not the best - you probably can find the same books required for a course on ebay or half.com, but the convenience is the reason I bought a book from there. I would not really recommend students to purchase their books from this store - but I think if you wait too long to purchase your books, you have no other choice!

PROS: Convenient
CONS: Customer Service needs improvement.

Please do not use this place to rent your books. They charged my sons credit card for the full price of his books when he was a few days late returning them. When you rent your books they state that there is a late fee if you're late
