I Shop Montclair Village Because It Matters Where I Shop!

"I Shop Montclair Village Because It Matters Where I Shop!"

Ray Oldenburg - The Great Good Place

This is a time of great challenge for local business, and especially for local bookstores.  Online retailers with their comprehensive databases of your online behavior offer discounts that are hard to beat.  Why should you choose to shop at A Great Good Place for Books instead of at your favorite dot-com? One word sums it up:  "Community."


At A Great Good Place For Books, we believe in "community."


GGP's focus on community is reflected in our name - as Ray Oldenburg wrote, bookstores are one of the "great good places" where a community comes together.  Here, in this "great good place," we come together to hang out, laugh, cry, chat, eat cookies, and share our love of reading good books.

Please, during this holiday season, stop by and enjoy one of the Great Good Places of Montclair Village. We believe the personal experience of hanging out with your community of book lovers will make your holiday brighter.



Your secret code words for savings!

By the way, we understand that price and value matter - we believe that our prices are fair and very competitive for the level of service we commit to bring you.  However, as one more incentive, tell us the secret code words "I shop Montclair Village because it matters where I shop!" at the register before December 25, 2012 as you make your in-store purchase of $10 or more, and we will take $5 off! (One per customer please.)


You can learn more about our focus on community in the documentary about our bookstore, "Community" by young filmmakers Lizzy Kelleher and Maddie Hsu.
