The Book Trader
J.P. Jackson, a faithful customer of The Book Trader since its opening in 2003, purchased the business on the first day of 2012. Since then, he's expanded the shop's hours, increased its inventory of reads, and picked up a line of humorous greeting cards. Shelves loaded with 6,000 tomes organized by author and genre make it easy to find pulp fiction, beach reads, or postmodern mad libs. Staffers screen all incoming books to ensure quality and a diverse selection, making sure to spray stray fingerprints with vanishing dust.
If clients cannot find a desired book, the shop's experienced staff will keep an eye out for the title and call when it arrives, or even channel partnerships with other local bookstores to snag the title. The Book Trader also accepts used books, and converts trade-ins into store credit that can be used for up to 50% off future purchases.
