Cut-rate Book Store to Open at Tyrone Square Mall


By TB Reporter

321 Books will offer selections at $3 or less. 

ST. PETERSBURG — A new book store with prices set at $3 or less is scheduled to open March 4 near the JCPenney store in Tyrone Square Mall’s main new concourse.

The store, called 321 Books, is projected to occupy 10,000 square feet and stock about 100,000 used books, mostly hardcover. It is 321’s first bricks-and-mortar location, the company having previously sold on Amazon.

321 will carry fiction, nonfiction, children’s books, DVDs, CDs and video games.

“We are really excited to have our first store opening at Tyrone Square Mall,” company principal Tim Russell said in a press release.

“321 buys and sorts over 25,000 books per day and most of them can’t be sold on Amazon. Mostly because the books weigh too much. I think people will be shocked at the books they will be seeing in the store, they’re like new and some are over 90 percent off (manufacturer’s suggested retail price,” Russell said.

321 will feature a children’s area and will be host to book signings and readings by authors.

The store has a goal of donating one million books to youngsters and local charities, Russell said.
