Students’ Association Used Bookstore a ‘win-win situation’ for students
Date Posted: March 19, 2015
Classes are nearing the end and summer is approaching, but there is at least one more thing you need to do before you head off — find a new home for your used textbooks.
Now, while old textbooks make great doorstops, you can put them to better use and the SA Used Bookstore is here to help.
The SA Used Bookstore is a consignment bookstore operated by your Students’ Association. At the SA Used Bookstore, textbooks are placed on consignment by individual students and the SA sells them on their behalf.
“It’s a win-win situation for students,” said Jessica Walker, coordinator of the SA Used Bookstore. “Students selling their books get to recoup a significant portion of the purchase price of their books and students buying books get to save money.
“Books are sold on a first-come, first-served basis so it is important to consign your books early and if you are in the market for a used book, to check back often.”
Students who consign with the SA Used Bookstore receive payment, minus a small commission, once their books have sold.
Only books being used in the current term are accepted by the bookstore. Fall books are accepted in August; winter term books are accepted in January. Spring books will be accepted in April.
