Market Fresh Books
From biochemistry textbooks to best-selling paperback thrillers, most of the reading material at Market Fresh Books has the same price: $5.99 per pound—although some material such as graphic novels and audiobooks may vary. Co-owners and Evanston residents Paul and Susan wanted to find a new way to sell in-demand used books, so they simplified the process by stocking their shelves with popular titles for all age groups and charging by weight for most items. The stores also cater particularly to the needs of students by buying back textbooks and reselling the used copies for a fraction of the original retail price. Additionally, Market Fresh Books tempts its customers with used CDs, movies, vinyl records, video games, and a fire pit around which an old man tells the tales of yore.
