5 reasons to shop at the Goodwill Bookstore and Donation Center

The Goodwill Bookstore and Donation Center opened in early June in North Canton. The store, at 2207 E. Maple St., is in an ideal location close to the post office, a Starbucks, Walsh University, Giant Eagle, and several fast-food and fast-casual restaurants. 

This is our second Goodwill Bookstore and Donation Center. The first is in Westlake at 30655 Detroit Rd.

Both stores are open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.  

Here are five reasons to shop at the bookstore. 

1. Low prices on books: 

Finding used books for a good deal is not as easy as it once was. Thankfully, the Goodwill Bookstore has affordable prices. Paperback and hardback book prices vary, but most are $3.94 or $4.77. Many books are in like-new condition with clean spines and mark-free covers. 

2. The store offers more than just books: 

Although “bookstore” is in the title, the store offers more than just books. At the back of the store, you’ll find a section of other media, including DVDs, blu-rays, TV series, VHS tapes, CDs and cassettes. Sometimes you’ll find items still sealed. At the front of the store, you’ll find new puzzle books and other new items for purchase.

3. Wide selection of items: 

Like most bookstores, the Goodwill Bookstore has a wide selection of titles covering a variety of topics. Choose from general fiction, a vast selection of mystery and thriller books, romance novels, biographies and memoirs, cookbooks, religious books, young adult and children’s books, plus books on specific topics, such as finance, sports and photography, to name a few. 

4. Always changing inventory: 

As this location has an attached donation center, the inventory is always changing. If you stop in regularly, you’re bound to find new titles and a different selection on each visit. The team is stocking shelves throughout the day, adding new items all the time. 

5. You can donate before or after you shop: 

As mentioned above, this store has an attached donation center, which is open the same hours as the store. A greeter will assist with your donations. This donation center accepts more than just books. Drop off items as you would at other drop-off locations.
