The former location of Borders is now home to a new type of buy-and-sell bookstore. 2nd & Charles officially opened to the public last Wednesday before the rush of Black Friday shopping.
Located in the Smoketown Station strip mall between ULTA cosmetics and FedEx Office, the store obtained much of its stock from parent company, Books a Million and from what employees sold them.
Many books are on sale for under $2 and if you spend more than $20 at the store you will get a free tote.
On its website, 2nd & Charles says that the buyback program processes items’ condition and compares it with the store's current inventory. Then, customers can get a cash offer, store credit or have items returned.
The store buys and sells the follow items:
- DVDs & Blu-Ray
- Video Games
- Game Systems & Accessories
- Vinyl Records
- Audio Books
