WELCOME TO OUR MASSIVE BOOKSHOP
The Massive Bookshop is an anti-profit bookstore based in western Massachusetts. Our aim is to build a co-operative business with the potential to expand beyond books into whatever areas we choose collectively with you. If you have an idea for how we might grow please contact us. We are receptive to any picture of collective prosperity that you offer us.
For the moment, our focus is on getting you the books you want at prices that rival those you'll find on Amazon and comparable websites. To do that, we give you a substantial portion of our trade discounts. For most new books, you can expect to pay between 20-30% off list price when you buy from us.
As an anti-profit enterprise, we don't ask you to pay a premium to support the publishers and authors you want to read. Moreover, we are committed to using the revenue we generate to support mutual aid and organizing efforts where we and our customers live. You can learn more about our profit redistribution efforts on OUR FRIENDS page.
In addition to local deliveries, which we make every Wednesday within a 30 mile radius of Greenfield, Mass., we can also ship books directly to your door; or, if we don't have what you're looking for, let us order it for you through the MASSIVE BOOK HOOK-UP. Most orders placed through the Book Hook-Up will ship in 2-3 business days. If you're local, they're eligible for local delivery, too.
To make all this work we have to keep our overhead very low. We don't pay rent, we don't take out loans, and we don't have employees. No one working in the Massive Bookshop keeps any money for themselves. Like you, we have day jobs that pay our bills.
The Massive Bookshop is a business but it's also a medium to redistribute some wealth, while providing an alternative to for-profit booksellers for those interested in imagining alternatives to capitalism.
We hope you find this fun, because we certainly do.
Because we don't pay rent, we have no storefront; but you can reach us via snail mail at our P.O. Box:
