September Sales, Starting with a 20/30/40 Sale!

Hello Everyone! I am excited to share that we are ready to offer a new sort of sale that I have had in my mind since we started our new books department in 2019!  The basic idea is that we would pull new books that we intend to return to the publisher--overstock quantities, books that have come out in paperback, hot titles from 2020, and so forth--and stage them on tables and shelves for a final sale before we return them to the publishers. 

The sale will begin at 20% off on Friday for any of these overstock titles, and then drop to 30% Saturday, and 40% on Sunday, which is a true wholesale cost for many of these books.  A 20/30/40 Sale I call it.  

I do recognize that this is more-or-less the original sale idea, which probably existed in Mesopotamia.  Yet, I think the combination of recently published, highly interesting, brand new books and price reductions down to wholesale price at a local, independent bookstore is something refreshing in its simplicity and earnestness.  I hope you will like it!  

If you haven't visited our store recently or seen our new books collection recently, I hope you may find this as encouragement to stop by and see what we've put together!  I believe that our buyer, Chris Herndon, and our staff as a whole, have put together a very special collection, where our intentionality and purpose shines through. 

We want to offer a fine product at an excellent price, and truly earn your business.  I hope you find this sale is another level of doing just that.  Here are the details:
