Henderson Nevada Used Book Store
Copper Cat Books is the newest used book store in Henderson, Nevada. With an emphasis on used books, we will also be offering gift items and book reading accessories for readers of all ages.
Owning and operating a used book store has been a “want to do” of ours for a number of years. Having established and operated small businesses in the past we looked at buying several bookstores...but ended up staying where we were because it was easier...and safer but...finally, we decided now was a good time to go ahead and “just do it”.
Once we made a decision to move forward with Copper Cat Books, we realized the books we accumulated personally over the years was not enough to really "stock the shelves"! So, a search for interesting and diverse books in print began. We acquired thousands of printed books and material through the purchase of the libraries of two collectors with very different personal tastes. Our opening inventory reflects this and is a quite eclectic mix.
After looking at different areas of the Las Vegas Valley, we could see the area of town near where we live was not served by a bookstore. We were able to fill that gap and even stay close to home by locating at Amador Plaza near the United States Post Office on Horizon Ridge Parkway.
Our thought is to provide a constantly changing inventory for our customer. For every box worth of books we sell we will add box from our warehouse, and true to our slogan: Not a curiosity shop, but a shop for the curious; we hope to keep customers coming back. With the wide variety of books we have amassed over the years we are sure to have something you cannot leave without! In the unlikely event you do not find something you need when you stop by, come back soon as our inventory will change as books are sold and we replace our sold books with those to be sold. If we still don't have what you are looking for, provide your contact info and we can keep an eye out as we bring new inventory in and let you know when your book becomes available.
This is not a large chain store where we have many copies of the same new books. Virtually all of our inventory will be one-offs, and so if see a book you think you might want, better buy it; because once it is sold it will be gone from our inventory maybe to never be replaced.
Our intent is to not only have a store full of books but to have a store full of welcome. We want to create a place where you want to come to see what we have today and socialize with us or fellow customers; we do have places for you to sit and read passages in an interesting book before you buy it; maybe even sit down and work on a jigsaw puzzle for a few minutes. The key here is we want you to feel welcome and to come back.
Our emphasis is on used books but we do have the ability to purchase new books if that is your pleasure, again this will be as a result of what customers ask of us. We offer gift and accessory items for readers and non-readers alike, reading glasses, bookmarks, magnets, blank greeting cards, tote bags, handmade jewelry and soaps, .
While initially we will not be taking books in trade for store credit we may develop a trade policy in the future. If there is a particular used or new book you are looking for, let us know, we can put your wants on our wants list and we can help you find it.
Stop by and see us at 1570 West Horizon Ridge Pkwy Suite 170; between Valle Verde Dr and Arroyo Grande Blvd, across street from US Post Office
