The website has been updated recently, and it's a lot more helpful now. You can finally see what books are at what store so you don't have to necessarily go there to look on the shelves or call in and wait for them to look. I don't think you can look at the entire inventory of a certain store, but if you are looking for something specific, you can hit a drop-down button to see which stores that item is in.
And since the website also includes other sellers, you get kind of an expedia.com system for looking for your stuff. Often times the other sellers have better prices than half price books. And often times, the prices online differ from the prices in the store, which they explained is because the online prices use an algorithm to adjust their prices to other prices around the internet.
In any case, I'd say check the website before you head to a store if you're looking for a specific thing. You'll have an idea it will be there, and you'll have an idea of what the prices will be.
Review by GTalbert Derrow3 years ago
Very helpful staff at Half Price Books. I asked them if they could hold a DVD TV series for me while I ran to have lunch with my husband rather unexpectedly and they said it was not a problem. The gentleman at the counter said he could hold it for up to a week in case I didn't make it back. How nice! They have a great selection of movies (old and new), TONS of books covering a TON of topics. ...AND they can usually tell you if they have something in stock and find it for you on the shelves. I just cannot say enough about this place. I've been to both locations in Lexington and one of the Louisville locations and have found they are all helpful and have great deals on lots of stuff!
