Please read carefully. Closing Sale (NOT GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE).
Unless a miracle happens, we will be closing our store on Main Street in Amsterdam sometime next Spring. However, we are not going out of business. We will still sell books on facebook, Abebooks, Amazon, Biblio and eBay as well as (hopefully) at local venues.
We opened the store on Main Street 10 years ago with high hopes. While we have always made a profit, our gross and net income on Main Street have never approached 50% of what we took in when we were on Locust Avenue in the early 2000s. Most of that is due to major changes in the book market, not to location or anything else. I am also approaching retirement age and have other things I would like to do in life that I have not been able to do.
With that in mind, here are our discounts.
September 2019. 20% off all used books.
October 2019. 30% off all used books.
November 2019. 40% off all used books.
December 2019. 50% off all used books. 10% off all new books except for books on consignment and Historic Amsterdam League products.
January 2020. Discount ??? (Will let you know).
We will start moving some better books to our house soon, so don’t wait too long if you want any of our better books.
Discounts are also applied to other products we sell including cds, dvds, postcards, ephemera, comic books, record albums, etc. Discounts cannot be combined with any other discount or coupon. $10 minimum order to receive discounts. Discounts are in store only. Discounts do not apply to books on layaway or reserve. We reserve the right to end the sale or change the terms of the sale at any time.
DON’T FORGET THAT, DURING SEPTEMBER, WE ARE ONLY OPEN TH 11-4, FR 11-6 AND SAT 11-3. OTHER HOURS BY APPOINTMENT OR CHANCE. WE WILL GO BACK TO OUR REGULAR HOURS IN OCTOBER.
