    Our employees are part of UAW LOCAL 2179 & we have to vote on Strand's final proposal next week. Most of us are planning to reject it.

    Kindle e-books are now outselling hardcovers. Go old school. Step away from your Kindle and buy a $1 book on the sidewalk. You'll feel like a kid again. - Erica Swallow Read more

    Employees, if you still wanna use plastic. Get a cash advance & be sure to have your pin#. Bank matches beat service fees. We need atms still though. Seriously.

    Decent money back for old books but the staff is a little....brusk. Especially Neil. Could be friendlier.

    DO NOT SELL YOUR BOOKS HERE.The Strand has a new policy on buying books. Once you walked through their door they own your books and pay you whatever they wish after their 'appraisal' Nasty.
