Another Used Bookstore Opens!

The Walls of Books franchise system has just awarded its first store. This new location will open in Tifton, Georgia. The new owner is extremely excited… and who can blame her? We have opened six used bookstores across the Southeast in the last five years, and I always say the same thing each time: “Man, that was a lot of work!”

I’ve always enjoyed negotiating a lease after finding the perfect location, creating a design layout, and buying inventory. However, the man-hours involved in pricing, sorting, and shelving the books is incredible! We’ve opened stores in as little as a month, but other stores have taken up to three months. With franchising under the Walls of Books name, our team helps franchisees with all the “fun” stuff while also making the pricing, sorting, and shelving a faster process.
