Today through Saturday the 7th, get 20% off your entire purchase and maybe win a prize!! Plus, come on Saturday night at 7pm and here an awesome performance by Skyler.
What have we accomplished in 10 years?? Let's take a look at how we measure up against Amazon:
Local employees-- RiverRun: 6 on average. Amazon: 0
Local Property taxes paid-- RiverRun: $85,000. Amazon: 0
Cash and Gift Card contributions to local schools and charities-- RiverRun: $70,000 Amazon: 0
Cultural Events Produced-- RiverRun--1000+ Amazon-- 0
Cheap Used Books-- RiverRun: yes Amazon: yes
Discounts-- RiverRun: discounts to schools and nonprofits, frequent buyer program, book group program Amazon: Lots
So they beat us on straight discounts, but over the years I hope we've showed Amazon a thing or two about the importance of community building (because I know they are watching us closely!!).
Thank you all for your support over the last decade. We hope you will stop by this week and take part in our sale.
We are your friendly neighborhood bookstore, located in downtown Portsmouth, NH. Small but potent, we offer a fine selection of new books with an emphasis on fiction, history, poetry and mystery. We also have a great little kids section, and hold over 100 events a year.
