A big sale is going on right now with paperbacks going for $2 or $5 for three books with hardbacks going for $4 or $10 for three. The Riveras contend if business doesn’t pick up soon, they may be forced to close their doors, which is something neither wants to do.
“We have our loyal customers, that’s for sure, but we’re still running short each month,” Pete Rivera said.
“We, of course, don’t want to see the store close because Weatherford needs this type of store,” Michelle Rivera said. “Maybe there’s someone out there who wants it more.”
To encourage more business, the store has been staying open Mondays for the past few weeks, which has shown to help matters. Store hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For information on Pop’s Used Books, call Pete at 598-1800.
