About the company

We have had an open store since 1987. We've been online since 1997. We moved to our larger (about 1800 square feet) location in January of 1999.

We had to move because Von's bought the Shopping center where our old store was located (4174 Woodruff in Lakewood, near the corner of Woodruff & Carson in Lakewood) and was planning to tear it all down and remodel. Construction of the new Von's finished as of January 2001. They didn't remodel our site after all. The move seems to have been for the best, the new location has been much better for us. The New Store has a Genuine Vault, leftover from when the building was a Jewelry Store in the 40's. It is now the depository of our 1st Editions and Collectibles. We have a large selection of both Paperback and Hardback books (somewhere in the neighborhood of 35,000+ items). We have a wide selection of books with no topics excluded. A staff fairly knowledgeable in the fields of Military, Mystery, SF, Fantasy, Romance & more. Send a note if you have any questions, comments, or want any more info.
