This is a video of the new Half-Price bookstore in San Antonio, Texas. Half Price now has 113 stores throughout the USA. They buy books from the public and resell.
I have a local bookstore that buys my used paperbacks for 25% of the original price, for credit in the store. Then I can buy books from them for 50% of the original price. They tack on a transaction fee of $.20/book that I buy. They don’t always take a book that I bring in, sometimes they may have too many of that book on the shelf. However they do stamp all books sold by them and always take them back as long as I haven’t drooled my morning coffee all over the book.
Now I want to send you for a look at some very unusual bookstores, the video on the first one is interesting and you have to click on the pags to see the ten stores.
