Buying is currently on hold (with a few exceptions)

We are accepting donations in our parking lot.

  • We have two Contactless Donation Stations every day from 7am-7pm, except when it’s raining. There are pallet-sized boxes and also an empty pallet. They are on either side of the building.
  • We accept books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl records, comic books, puzzles, board games, and some other items (ask questions at otheritems@grassrootsbooks.com)
  • We’re glad to unload. Give us a call at 775-828-2664 (press 4 to speak to a human) or check inside.

 

 We hope to resume buying soon. We experimented a bit, and what we found is that:

  • We need good weather, so we can do most of the work outside (including evaluating, checking in, and paying cash). This is temporary while we’re keeping distance during the pandemic.
  • We need to finish rehiring. We are trying to hire 5 people.  We’re taking applications by Craigslist.

 

We are buying now, in a limited capacity. Here’s what we can do as of 2-26-21:
