Consignment Program

Due to the busy nature of the holiday season, we will not be accepting new consignment agreements until January 2018. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Please contact us at consignment@parkroadbooks.com after the start of 2018 to join our consignment program.

  • Carry your book for a year
  • Take a 40% commission on any book sales
  • Send payment for any book sales twice a year, end of January and end of July

Each book that we bring into our store reflects our business and our commitment to our community. We aim to carry the best possible selection for our customers, and product quality is a maror part of our consideration.
