Planning

Sometimes even all the books we buy from our customers aren't enough to stock the shelves. So we must hunt...

Strategy

​​When attacking a box of books larger than yourself, a knife to cut the box down is good, also ladders, step stools, tennis shoes, gloves & someone to pull you out in case you get stuck! Our manager Don once found a live snake in one of these boxes!

Results
​​Sometimes we get asked to buy whole storage units or garages full of books...

it can be a beautiful sight!  

(Some restrictions apply.)
