4 years ago!

This was posted 4 years ago today as we opened for business. Thanks to everyone for a great 4 years. Come join us today for cupcakes and a sale. Today through Saturday, March 3, all books will be 30% off! So, it is time to stock up on reading material!
” The Used Book Emporium opened today and we actually had some customers. It was probably one of the coldest, windiest days and we open a bookstore! One month ago we took possession of an empty building with a checkout counter in it. In the past 28 days we traveled to Utah to purchase about 10,000 books from a bookstore that was closing, purchased a computer and lots of lumber, and built 33 sets of bookshelves! Thank heavens for Nina, who sawed all the lumber, I did the measuring and Pam and Dan put most of the shelves together. Pam and I also put some of them together by ourselves. Thanks to our friend, Rich Winget, who taught us how to build the shelves. And now one month later, we are open for business!”

It’s our 4th Anniversary on March 1

Thursday, March 1 is our 4th anniversary and we are ready to celebrate. 30% off all books in the store and we will be serving cupcakes! 30% off the books lasts through Saturday, March 3! Now is the time to stock up on books. Four years ago we opened with a blizzard and drifting across the street. A truck tried to go through the snow drift and just about took out our mailbox. We had 4 customers that day and wondered what we had done! We are so happy we did it, because we have had a blast meeting our wonderful customers, building bookshelves and having fun. Please come celebrate with us!

New Year’s Sale

We hope you have had a stupendous start to 2018 and we are having a sale to make it even better. We have been working hard to clean out and reorganize the store and we think it makes it a bit easier to find the books you want. It certainly is helping us! Starting Tuesday, January 23 through Saturday, January 27, all books in the store will be 20% off. We have received a nice selection of Louis L’Amour titles in hardback, in case you are looking to add to your collection.

Jonathan Kiefer and Matthew Bartos have started a new business upstairs called Salvo Airsoft providing everything needed for Airsoft. Check out their website at salvoairsoft.com.
Enjoy the new year with some new books for winter reading. We are open Tuesday thru Friday from 10 to 5 and Saturdays from 10 to 4. Hope to see you soon!
