This is my favorite bookstore in town. They don't always have what I'm looking for, but the staff are friendly and the prices are very good. My friends say that I should support local businesses like the Frugal Muse, but the one time I did go to the Muse the staff were unfriendly, unmotivated, and they refused what I wanted to sell. I'll never go there again.

Jessica is a great help and very knowledgable. I enjoy going in and getting what I want, or need, at a reasonable price, from an extremely knowledgable young lady.

The pricing isn't the best, but it is based on the need of the item, the condition of the item, and the amount that is already in stock, so they do not have a lot of control over how much they can offer.

Keep it up Jessica...they need more like you

Rude management, low ball offers on books and cd's, and not a very good selection. I keep in mind that they are just a middleman and I'm better off selling on Ebay, but they make some of the lowest offers for books in town.
Plus, this is the Walmart of used bookstores, very much a corporate mentality. I prefer to do business with local bookstores like Frugal Muse.

The prices of the books are not really cheap and some are more expensive than Barnes and Nobles. I wouldn't shop here for books due to their limited selection. The customer service wasn't helpful and most of the books are story books. The used books are really worn out. It's located right next to Copps Food Center. Parking space is spacious.

I love shopping at Half Price Books, once a month or so, I will make about an hour of time to go and browse there. I often get coupons there and love finding cheap books in their clearance section, selling my old books to make room for new, etc. They have a unique selection and I have often picked up DVD's or cds cheaper than anywhere else!
Definite Thumbs UP!
