Our warehouse houses over 500,000 square feet of bargain-priced books that are 75-90% off the original list price. Our inventory is made up of publishers’ excess books, which are all unread and guaranteed to be in excellent condition. Most books are discreetly marked with a small line or dot on the edge of the pages to signify their discount market status. This mark ensures that the books will not be returned to the publisher for a second credit, and it translates into big savings for you.
Our proprietary, in-house-developed Warehouse Management System controls the flow of all operations in our 500,000 plus square foot warehouse. We continually invest in technology to streamline our operations; with over 200 dedicated staff, 5,000 feet of conveyor, a mechanical sorter, and 25 packing stations you can be assured of a high degree of accuracy and quick turnaround time for your order.
Our state-of-the-art systems ensure accurate inventory control, allowing us to maintain an industry-leading fill rate of 99% or higher.
We are specialists in sorting return pallets. Each and every week we sort over 300 pallets – that’s over ten tractor trailers of books! – which gives us that great selection we are known for.
