Dear Shakespeare & Co.,

I love your bookstore at 716 Broadway (Washington Square) because it has many used books for us poor college students.


Whenever I visit your location at 939 Lexington Avenue & 68th St. or the 137 E. 23rd Street location, it has always been a negative experience. The young people who sell new/used books or do your textbook buyback tend to be disinterested and rude. So, now I avoid those stores.

Again, I am sorry that this happened to you. Be assured, we will correct for this disappointment.

I appreciate the time you took to reach out to us. I would hope that a future visit to these stores better reflects the bookstore that we are. We are hard at work to that end.
