They offer a trade-in/credit program but I've never signed up, so not sure how it works. Two locations: big store right in the downtown mall and another smaller store on Solano north of Idaho. Downtown location has a nice little coffeeshop.
I've signed up. Mostly because of my kids, and exchanging books. I am not sure how their credit system works, but the upshot of it is that you bring in unwanted books, and they line item credit per book onto a 3x5 index card. Your surplus is listed on there. Then you can buy any book of your choosing, and it is subtracted from that index card.
