One thing we’ve learned in our history is that there are no one-size-ﬁts-all solutions in the college bookstore industry. Our experience has taught us to listen to our partners and try our best to build each one an individualized solution. For this reason, we offer a variety of services to meet the unique needs of your college.
In our full service on-campus stores we understand the importance in having a working balance between both the students and the faculty. Our bookstore management teams work tirelessly to find the best deals and offer the most affordable possible prices to students while keeping up-to-date with the needs of the faculty. We understand the workload put onto professors and work to streamline the adoption process and allow your college to decide what works best for them. Being adaptable has helped us create personalized on-campus programs for each of our locations.
Textbook Corner has been the choice for students for over a decade as we offer full service off-campus operations at several colleges. Because we put the students first, we are able to offer lower prices, a fee-free "Rent Now, Pay Later" program, and as always, unparalleled customer service. We also thrive to have positive, working relationships with the school even though we are the off-campus location.
Are you an institutionally operated bookstore struggling to offer the most buyback dollars to your students? We can help! Encore Education has one of the best buyback programs in the industry. We can quickly set up a buyback on your campus and pay your students more than the minimal wholesale prices on many titles. We also buy many more titles than wholesale companies, so students make more money from Encore Education.
Text Solutions is our simple, inclusive low-cost rental program that can be custom designed for any campus bookstore. With Text Solutions, students are charged one flat rate for all their textbooks each semester. Students simply bring their schedule to the bookstore and leave with their textbooks. Overall average cost to students is drastically reduced to about $300 per semester. Students no longer spend countless hours searching the internet for the lowest price in hopes that they receive the correct edition book with all its pages intact in time for classes.
Some colleges want to operate their own spirit stores but prefer to outsource their textbooks. Encore Education can provide your students with everything they need to order their textbooks directly from us. We can integrate seamlessly with most financial aid systems and ship the textbooks directly to each student’s door.
Despite our best efforts to anticipate market trends and student changes, we know that your campus may present a new challenge that we have not yet encountered. For this reason, we remain ready to build a unique bookstore operation for you. Perhaps the solution for your campus is a mix of different services we offer. Or maybe, we need to design something brand new. The Encore Education difference is that we are flexible, innovative and responsive to the needs of our partners.
Got big growth goals for your school? We’re here for that!

"I have been affiliated for this company for more than 10 years and I have been highly impressed by their adaptability and ethic of care they have provided. They are more than a vendor."
Fitz Hill, Ed. D THE FOUNDATION OF ARKANSAS BAPTIST
"The lack of vendor follow-through led to several student complaints and discrepancies. This was unsettling for our students and meant more cost to the University. Once Encore came on-board, those issues stopped."
Brian M. Huggins, Comptroller Harris-Stowe State University
"We greatly appreciate the service that Encore has provided for our institution and we look forward to many years of this successful relationship."
