Most students are familiar with the bookstore here on grounds at PVCC, but many of them do not know much about it.

The bookstore actually offers several services besides just selling books. The store is also run by a great staff who love their job and are always there to help get students just what they need for class.

The first thing the staff at the bookstore would like students to know is that there is now a website for the store.

On the website, you can do things like online ordering and buy digital books. You can do this all at www.pvccshop.com. The bookstore also offers custom clothing, notebooks, pens and other supplies. These items can be ordered at www.campuscollections.com.

Another service provided by  the bookstore is a gift card price match program. The store will match any price on books from Amazon Prime and Barnes & Noble by giving students  a gift card. The card will be loaded with the difference between the competitor’s price and the store’s price, and it can be spent in store. They also offer a rental program which allows you to rent the books you need for a class at a low price for just the semester you need it.

Already bought  books for the semester? That is alright. The store will buy it back from you at the end of the semester.

The store’s staff seem to take a lot of  pride in their work. “I love it,” says Bob Fred, an employee of the bookstore. Fred has been in the bookstore business since 1983 and at PVCC since 1998. Fred really seems to enjoy his work and always is willing to help students out.

What sells most besides books at the bookstore? The staff say the 99 cent notebooks are one of their most popular items. You may have seen a lot of them around the campus already.

They also sell a lot of headphones, which you can find behind the counter, and notecards.

Come into the bookstore sometime, buy  a notebook, and  receive some wonderful service from  friendly staff.
