Community Supported Bookstore Program

Point Reyes Books is establishing a Community Supported Bookstore (CSB) Program.

It's inspired by the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) movement which encourages loyal customers to help local formers be sustainable. We think a CSB can do the same for local, independent booksellers ... like Point Reyes Books.

What's it all about?

Independent bookstores have been hard hit by chain stores, online book discounters like Amazon, and e-books. A CSB will help Point Reyes Books navigate the crests and troughs of running a small retail operation while giving you a real stake in our continuing success as a sustainable and productive local business.

How does it work?

Do you amass frequent flyer miles with an airline? Receive dollars back for credit card purchases? Our CSB works in a similar way to become a member, simply deposit $150 to $500 in your Point Reyes Books CSB account, then draw your purchases against that balance. You'll get special member benefits, including a 5% discount on all in-store or online purchases, even special orders! We'll keep track of your purchases through our computerized system. Membership valid for one year from date of purchase.
