January and February- Just online for the moment. Be watching for announcements of where you might find us.
With any new business there will be questions. Here are a few we have heard over the last couple of weeks.
1. Do you buy books from customers?
We do not buy books from customers as a general practice. Unless you have something that would really catch our attention, like a rare fine, it just isn't our cup of tea.
2. Do you have new and used or just used?
Great question. We have two shelves dedicated to used books. 90% of the books in our store are NEW.
3. Are your prices comparable to discount booksellers?
We are an independent bookstore. We do, however, attempt to keep our prices low. On average our books are generally discounted some 20-50% of list. Some are even discounted further. Occasionally our books will be at full retail because we feel compelled to sell it for full value due to demand. We also have a section of rare titles that will be priced accordingly.
4. Who are the owners?
The owners are Keith and Rebekka Pruitt, residents of Old Hickory who have roots in the Nashville area dating back before the Civil War. Words of Wisdom is a family owned business not a corporate giant.
