Got Books and the Used Book Superstore
Got Books collects over a million books each year either through our exclusive free in home book collection service or through our nearly 400 book donation containers. Book collections, either in home or from donation containers are handled by our professional drivers and a fleet of trucks.
Books, DVDs and CDs donated to one of our collection containers directly benefit the nonprofit container host. Each time a book donation container is emptied Got Books pays the hosting nonprofit group (school, faith-based organization, charity or club) for all of the donations collected inside.
Collection, unloading and sorting books is all done by hand to ensure that the books are not damaged during processing.
Books sold at the Used Book Superstore are priced at a small fraction of their original cost. Book prices start at $1.29. This makes books affordable again for everyone in the community. Additional discounts are given to teachers, military and anyone who receives the Used Book Superstore email newsletter or who ‘likes’ the Used Book Superstore on Facebook.
Got Books is a for-profit company that directly employs nearly 100 people in MA and NH. Got Books is proud to disclose that our business model provides the company with a gross profit after donations, nonprofit payments and philanthropic programs of less than 3%.
More About Used Book Superstore
Each Used Book Superstore has 100,000 used books, DVDs, CDs and audio books that are displayed in a brightly lit, organized and comfortable book store. In addition to used books, DVDs, CDs and audio books, the Used Book Superstores often have new books and other seasonally appropriate selected merchandise at bargain prices.
When the first Used Book Superstore in August 2008, a line of people formed that stretched all the way to the street. They waited in line for over one hour to check out. Thousands of people flooded the store on opening weekend and made it clear that Got Books’ new sister company – Used Book Superstore was a success.
