Since 1972, the Pleasantville bookstore has been providing service to the town of Pleasantville. Currently owned by Roy Solomon, the bookstore gives great customer services and tries to get what you need. The first time visiting the bookstore, you are presented with a nice smile from the owner himself asking what you need. You tell him and he will try his best to helpful.
The bookstore is small and intimate giving it a homey feeling to the area. All you really need is some tables and chairs and it will turn into café. However, that is just wishful thinking on my part. The bookstore itself is organized into different categories. The hardcover non- fiction and the thank you cards are the first thing you see when you enter into the bookstore. As you walk deeper into the bookstore you will see more fiction books and another row of books. The travel/language book are located behind that shelf so it is pretty easy to find.
On the other hand, the bookstore does not have everything, but they are nice enough to order the book you’re looking for if you need it.
“This is my favorite bookstore in town. It’s cute, convenient and I love the fact that I can order books too. It definitely a place to be for a book lover,” said Junior Education Major, Kristina Castro.
There are some new books that they provide and also have recommendations for book lovers. So it is a great little bookstore when you are in need of a new book to rea.
Also, they give you a little card with 20 slots and when you fill it all up, they will average it out and can sometimes add up to 10 dollars that you can use in the store. So they are basically giving books away.
So if you are a major book lover, stop by the Pleasantville Village Bookstore.
