A Chat with The Last Word
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Unlike most used bookstores, we offer a variety of other media such as music, movies, and video games. We also have the highest standards in regards to the condition of our items that we sell to you. We offer most of our books at between 60%-80% off retail price.
Of the products you sell, which are your favorites?
Although we get joy out of selling all of our items, it is fun selling a variety of new and used disc golf discs. It is also really neat selling old video game systems that remind a lot of our customers of when they were younger.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The owners worked at a bookstore in Winston-Salem that was similar to The Last Word in function, but they had vision for a store in which they could implement ideas of their own. They wanted to provide a space for education, entertainment, and a great atmosphere punctuated by good customer service.
What do you love most about your job?
Suggesting the things that we love ourselves. It feels great to have a customer come back and tell you that they also loved something that you suggested. It is also really neat to seeing all the new items that come in on a daily basis. You never know from day to day what we may have new to sell.
