A letter from the Central Regional Manager & Chicago District Manager

Dear Booklover,

The independent bookstore industry has been lucky to see positive growth during the past few years. In fact, Half Price Books has opened two new stores in 2017. However, while things are improving in the book industry world, we as booksellers still need to be smart about the business decisions we make.

Therefore, we regret to announce we will close the Half Price Books in Highland Park on Sunday, July 8 at the end of our lease. We have great customers here in Highland Park, but there is not enough traffic at this location, so we are focusing our resources on our other area locations, including a new store in Vernon Hills, which is slated to open April 12, 2018.

Half Price Books has been in the Chicagoland market since 2005. We hope to see you at our other area locations, including our Niles store.

Anything purchased at the Highland Park store can be returned to any of our other Chicagoland locations under our regular return policy and coupons can be used at any of our other brick-and-mortar stores. Your HPB gift cards are also good at all Half Price Books retail locations and HPB.com.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Customer Care team at (800) 883-2114 or customercare@hpb.com.

Thanks for your support and we look forward to many more years of reading and recycling together.
