Half Price Books

About Half Price Books

“Be fair to customers and our employees, promote literacy, be kind to the environment and remain financially viable so we may continue.” — Our Mission Statement in the words of HPB Co-Founder Pat Anderson

With more than 120 stores across the country, plus a website with customers and sellers around the globe, we’ve become America’s largest family-owned retailer for new and used books. Our founders coined the phrase, “We buy and sell everything ever printed or recorded (except yesterday’s newspaper).” And if you’ve been to one of our stores, you know that’s true.

Half Price Books is committed to the community. We've been supporting literacy and environmental groups for more than 40 years and will continue working together to carry on the mission and causes of our founders. Each day when we go to work, we hope to do two things: share our favorite things with our friends, and help make the world a little better. That includes recycling and donating more than a million of our overstock books each year to local nonprofits and organizations around the world.

Half Price Books is a place for people who are interested in preserving, recycling and passing along information and entertainment in every form. We sell books, records, CDs, collectibles, magazines, videos, DVDs and game software. We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated people to work in the corporate level of our company.
