Why do I encounter various availability listings on your site?

Titles have different availabilities simply due to their demand, proximity, and availability to one of our SSVP locations. We also source our products from various donations. The availability on products we obtain may vary according on what we receive.

If a title is listed as out of stock or unavailable, it means that it is not currently available or not in stock through our distribution channels. 


Why are some titles discounted while others are not?

Our decision to discount products is made internally and based on a number of strategic considerations which can vary over time. As it stands now, we offer discounts on multiple selected titles. However we cannot confirm when, if ever, a title will be discounted or how long a title once discounted will remain so.
