The store clerk or owner was very polite. Customer service was great, But these people believe in pain pennies for books that are actually worth somethand have no care of previous owner, and they're freaking history of their existence

This is a great local bookstore with tons of used and new books. Also, love the album and movie selections.

Big Story Bookstore is an absolute treasure! They have new and used books- all in great condition- and even a selection of vinyl records! The staff was helpful, but not obtrusive. I would highly recommend popping in to see what they have in store.

  Best local book store I have visited many time already. Selection is huge and service is always friendly and consistent. The books are always in good condition.

  Love this place so much! Such a cute spot with so many good finds -- we have gotten many great books and Blu-rays from them and at reasonable prices too. Their First Friday events are super fun. Always a cool author or local vendor involved. Also really love all their beautiful plants and the vibe is just very chill and welcoming. So happy to have found my fav bookstore in Bend! You gotta go -- this one is a must visit!

  Big Story Books is a wonderful place - full of books and a happy atmosphere. Alyssa really knows her inventory and she provides excellent customer service.  I could go on, but you should go see for yourself.

  Wow, I didn't realize this was a real bookstore. I thought it was a thrift store with books but I was very wrong. This place is great! Prices are fantastic, selection was wonderful. If you're not looking for a specific new book, you will love this place.

  This bookshop is so cool! We loved the arrangements of the books and media. It is so creatively decorated! The fellow behind the counter was very kind and helpful. We found a whole pile of books, all of different genres, very inexpensive. Both used and new books available. Highly recommend!

  I always like to check out local bookstores, and I was delighted to find an obscure but favorite sci fi author, Roger Zelazny.  Two paperbacks published in the late 70's that appeared never to have been read!  I was glad I stopped in, and hope they prosper.  Mahalo.

  I love this place. Every time I visit Bend I make it a point to come here. They have an incredible selection of books from all different genres. Everyone I've encountered that works here is friendly, kind and helpful. I go in telling myself that I'll get "only one book this time" and always walk out with four or more. ‍ Make sure you check it out!!

  Very nice used and new book store; the employees are very helpful, and can/will make recommendations if you are stuck for what to read next!
