I wouldn't go there. The screwed a few people over with their ever changing policies for a cash grab and either lie or flat out attempt to cover up their mistakes.

The last place was more than difficult to navigate, the clerk fell asleep on shift a few times, and they cannot maintain the posted hours.
I hope they clean up their act on top of moving to a better locale.

I helped them move their store over to the new location at 1400 Niedringhaus Ave. and it's awesome. It looks great. They've worked really hard.
They gave us $10 an hour credit to help move. It was awesome.
It's a beautiful place now. It looks like a bookstore now.

It is in a great location and definately not a junk store Tomas. They have a great selection of new and used books.

Their prices are great and the staff is very friendly. I buy all my books there now. I hope everyone frequents it so we can keep a bookstore in Granite. Godfrey is losing theirs.

Just make sure you never EVER make them mad. Or try to use the store credit for any offers, or buy anything useful. or ridicule them. I've got a friend who got everything from being blocked, to being lied to, and even told a sob story after he tried to get the situation resolved openly.
Also,$10 an hour on store credit is worth less than $5 an hour to them. They buy books super cheap. So those 4 paperbacks you buy with the credit cost $5 IF they got it through trade from a person trading them in; Its even less if it's old back stock or pulled elsewhere. That's a bit shady for your "work" since the policy before the move required cash to pay half. So you may have ten bucks in credit, But you'll still need to give them $2.50 per hardcover to get anything. You can't use that on special offers either.
Your work gave you a discount, nothing else.

I helped move, and I have used the trade credit with no problems. They are super nice, and I still pay less with the trade credit than I would if I order the book online. That's a plus for me. Some books that are older are only $.50 to a $1.00. I love the store.
