What are some of these people talking about? – This store has been around for 20 years with a huge fan base. I've never seen the book/DVD/VHS/game side so full of stuff! Forget the complainers. If you have really good stuff they will pay for it and there are tons of things here for cheap prices. I asked, and the rent alone at B&R with Hobby Lobby and Target as anchor stores is 14k a month. Plus parking in the huge lot is easy and a lot of the employees are local practically local celebrities! Considering it costs $4 in shipping to order a used book off of Amazon, this place is bargain. I could go on and on, but you either get it or you don't.
Tip for Sellers – Went in recently to try and sell books. The buyer there was completely unfriendly and such a jerk. SO CHEAP too! Only wanted to give me $5 for an entire stack of books.
Word to the wise- if you're looking to sell anything - stick to EBay or Amazon,-these guys are completely cheap and treat you like you're bothering them.
High Prices on old stuff that should be .50. – If your into gaming stuff they have a good selection and decent prices.But that's about it. used DVD's that should be 2-3 $ they sell em for 8- 15 $ wow what a deal. vhs tapes straight up 50cents they sell them for 2-10 $ pathetic. then you got the music side which (next to the good selection on punk /hardcore) is a total rip off. overpriced cds used cd s for 8$ jesus !what are we made of money ill give you 2$ . ohh and make sure you know what price is on your cds cuz when they go get them they come back more expencive and dont even tell you about the difference.and then they treat you like your the thief. i give this store 2 more years of excistence.
very unfriendly environment – I think they hire people on the basis that they have no personality, and that they hate life. Everytime im in here they are cold and dont even say hello. I'll be lucky if i get two words out of them. Do not support this place for you will regret it like I do!!!!!!!
Adventurous Book and Music hunters-rejoy! – This is a RPG gamers greatest dream come true! Not only do they sell old, hard to find RPG books (at LARGE discounts) but they sell new RPG books at a discount. The rest of the store has a great selection of used books ranging from brand new non-fiction to some really old, antique fictional books, and everything in the middle. It also has lots of used DVDs, VHS, and tons of Vinyl records. It should be noted, the place is very cluttered and it can be hard to navigate sometimes, but the staff is acutely aware of where to find just about anything, and are almost always nice and helpful.
If you're a gamer or a geek, it's a dream come true. – Great selection of games, role playing books (old and new),dvd's, books of all genres, and even collectable miniatures. I love this place.
When it comes to books and music, this store's messy stacks of goods hide just what you're looking for. – In Short
A combo music/book shop, this store's messy stacks hide an impressive collection of musical and literary titles. Visitors will find vinyl and CDs ranging from blues to gothic to metal to jazz, as well as rows of science fiction, romance and classic literature, philosophical texts and computer books. Vintage posters line the wall, and shelves are filled with old board games, stacks of role-playing supplies, comics, trading cards and battered videos.
