Let’s Talk About Books

Peruse Fair’s Fair owner George Henderson's blog for interesting tidbits on used bookstore operations, business in general and the world as seen through the eyes of a book nut.

Bookstore Organization

Our inventory is organized in a way that allows customers to browse quickly if desired, yet is deep and broad-based if they prefer to browse the shelves. Each of our stores is computerized with a listing of books carried in that store. For years, we have used The Diamond Eye Database, a point-of-sale system with built-in inventory controls that utilizes barcode scanning and the production of barcode labels, further advancing our business.

Bookstores created for book lovers, since 1988
