Trade Credit is offered at all of our locations during regular store hours till 4pm.

Our CHINOOK/WAREHOUSE location ONLY accepts books with OUR PRICE LABELS on them.

Books with our price labels are worth 50% of OUR STICKER PRICE in TRADE CREDIT if they are in saleable condition.

Trade credit value is derived from the books' desirability, current and historic market values, in-print prices, conditions, and our current stock levels.

We DO NOT, and have NEVER had, a
2 for 1 policy in any of our stores.

The book business deserves our attention. If we work hard at it, we can achieve one worthwhile goal:

to have a positive impact on as many people's lives as possible.

We hope you like our stores. We have our customers to thank – and we do – every day.
