A letter from our District Manager

Dear Booklover,

While the bookstore industry has changed greatly during the past few years, Half Price Books has been lucky to continue its growth. In fact, we opened four new stores last year and are continuing to open new stores in new markets. But during this changing time for our industry, we have to be smart about the business decisions we make.

Therefore, it is with regret we announce that the Half Price Books store in Palatine will close at the end of business on November 10, 2016. We have loyal customers in this area, but unfortunately the traffic hasn’t been high enough to allow us to stay, so we are focusing our resources on our other Chicago-area locations.

Half Price Books has been committed to the Chicago market since 2005 and is grateful to our dedicated customers, whom we look forward to seeing at our other nearby bookstores, including our newest location in Downers Grove.

Anything purchased at the Palatine store can be returned to any of our nine other Chicago-area locations under our regular return policy. And any gift cards and coupons from the Palatine store are good to redeem at all Half Price Books retail stores.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Customer Care team at (800) 883-2114 or customercare@hpb.com. We appreciate your support and look forward to many more years of reading and recycling together.
