Half Price Books to OKC

I now have May 21st circled on the calendar. Half Price books is coming to Oklahoma City. They will be at 6500 N. May, on the NE corner of the 63rd and May intersection, which I think will be a great spot for them. Now, apparently, they had a location in OKC before, but it was gone before I got here nearly 3 years ago.

According to the building permit from the city, it's a 9800 sq. ft. location, which sounds pretty good. So, I'm looking forward to the new book hunting digs, especially a used book store.

The announcement from HPB says:
We will begin buying from the public April 27th
Before our Great Opening on May 21, we will buy between 10am and 4 pm Monday through Friday only.

We buy books, CDs, LPs, DVDs, Books on CD and more.
In fact, we will make a cash offer on anything printed or recorded, except yesterday's newspaper.
Once we open for business on May 21, we will buy from the public anytime we are open.

Our hours of operation will be:
9am to 10 pm Monday through Saturday
10 am to 8 pm on Sundays.

If you have any feelings about Half Price Books coming to town, let me know in the comments. For those of you outside Oklahoma City, if you have any feelings about them in your neighborhood, let me know too.

You'll be a regular customer. Good hunting ground. There's about half-a-dozen in the Houston area and I always find good books (as well as the occasional bibliophemera) in any of the stores I venture into. Go often toward the end of the year (Nov-Dec) and get their calendars for the upcoming year. They contain a series of discount coupons (15%) good for certain dates throughout the year. Let us know about your first trip and any interesting finds.

I agree with CW. We have a number of them in the the Twin Cities and I have the good fortune of having one right down the street here in Saint Paul. I spend way too much time in their stores.
