Whoever came up with the Trade-A-Book concept is a genius! This store has been here for as long as I could remember and the first time I ever went was a couple of years a go. I called them and asked them how to trade books and they told me all I had to do is bring them in and if they needed your books, you got a store credit to pick out new books for yourself. All you had to do is pay a $0.05 per book handling charge and unless you go over the credit, then there is no money out of your pocket.
The owner of the store is also very nice and very helpful. She is VERY informative on all kinds of authors and if you want to know if a book is in stock with out having to drive all the way over there. If the book is in stock, she is more than willing to pull the book herself have it waiting at the counter when you arrive. I just have to say EXCELLENT customer service!!!
I usually take my daughter here when I'm broke so I feel like I'm shopping without having to spend any money.
