Henderson Nevada Used Book Store
Copper Cat Books is the newest and only used book store in Henderson, Nevada. While we are primarily a used book store, we also offer gift items, gift certificates 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 operating inventory reflects this and is a quite eclectic mix.
After looking at different areas of the Las Vegas Valley, we thought that since the area near our home was not served by a bookstore, why not fill that gap and even stay close to home! So we are located at Amador Plaza across the street from the United States Post Office on Horizon Ridge Parkway.
Our thought is to provide a constantly changing inventory for our customer. For every box of books we sell we add new inventory from our warehouse. Our slogan: "Not a curiosity shop, but a shop for the curious" reflects our changing inventory and decoration. With the wide variety of books 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 again as our inventory changes as books are 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.
One of our services is our "Wish List"; looking for a specific book that we do not have, let us know and we will find a used copy for you.
In school and have up and coming reading list books you need? Let us know as soon as you have the list and we will get some copies in for you and your classmates.
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; we want you to feel welcome and to come back. We offer gift and accessory items for readers and non-readers alike, reading glasses, bookmarks, magnets, postcards, tote bags, and a selection of handmade jewelry.
We also introduced our Reader's Club Card. When you purchase an in-stock used book we will give you one of our cards. On the back of this card we record the amount you have spent, not including tax of course, on in-stock used books, this applies to in our store as well as any books that are in warehouse that we bring up for you. Keep the card and when you return we add subsequent purchases to it. Once you reach $40 spent you will receive $5 off on your in-stock book purchase on your next visit. The cool thing is that any amount over the $40 is rolled over onto your next card, so for example: you have a $45 balance on your card, you come in and spend $10. You will receive a $5 discount plus the $5 ($45-$40) rolls over to the next card AND the $5 you just spent in the store ($10 purchase minus the $5 discount) will be applied to the card so when you leave, you not only have received $5 off your purchase, the new card will have a $10 balance towards your next discount. Pretty cool huh? So be sure to hang onto your card as we do not track your purchases, or you.
