I went in there the other day and all three of the employees were wearing these scary-looking medical masks. It wasn't Halloween, so I'm guessing they must have some kind of contagious disease (?). Did not make me want to shop there!
Always find something interesting here, and their pricing on used CDs cannot be beat. Records as well! Ask for help, and you'll receive it- I recently did a "crate" dig through all of their $1 records and found some gems- even some that were new! But one of the ones I found was in terrible shape, and the manager looked for another copy for me- couldn't find it, but did find some other copies of other records by the same artist. I bought one of them.
Great store. Everything a used bookstore should be - nice selection of vinyl, CDs, DVDs, VHS, as well as, of course, books. If you are looking for some hard-to-find science fiction paperbacks (or hard cover) they might have them here. I brought in some things to sell, and the bookseller was fast and friendly, quickly sorted my things, checked the quality and I feel gave me a very fair cash price for what he chose to buy. Conveniently located near NC State with that "college town" vibe that those of us who are older still enjoy very much. Quite a few people sitting outside eating at the place next door on the lovely fall day of my visit.
The smell of old books and the varied assortment of music and literature makes this place a must return. My son and I have found all manner of cds and tapes and books to keep us entertained for hours, since he got a functional tape deck and cd player I forsee many hours and many dollars spent in this fine little store.
Just such a fun place to go to on campus. I love picking out their DVDs, and they obviously put real care into the causes they promote, such as the Prison Books Collective.
