Sell back your old textbooks

Oh hi.  Do you have some old textbooks lying around your room?  You’ve probably have been using them to keep the table level or maybe as a coaster.  But there is more to those books than what you are currently using them for.  You can sell them back and get some cold hard cash.  Which would be great since the weekend is right around the corner.  Lift tickets aren’t cheap!!  Textbook buyback is going on right now in front of The SkidShop.  Bring your books and your college ID.

We gave away $250 bucks to two luck winners yesterday because they sold us their textbooks last semester

Remember when we asked all of you to sell back your textbooks to The SkidShop and in return we’d enter you into a drawing to win $250 towards your Spring textbooks?  Well we have two winners!!

Congratulations to Netta Bob and Tom Sellers.  They each received $250 in cold hard cash to help them with the cost of their Spring textbooks.

We’re getting ready!!

Hope everyone is having a great winter break.  Just wanted to let you know that we’ve been busy putting textbooks on the shelves and getting the store ready for your return.  There are few small changes in the store that we think you’ll like.  We also have some fun things planned for all of you this Spring.  Don’t forget to place your order online.  That way you won’t have to wait in lines to get your textbooks.  Just walk in, flash us your ID and walk out the door.  You can order your books by clicking here.

Will Bell Tower give you a chance to win $250 towards your Spring Semester books? Answer is: NOPE
