How does Coyote Ridge compare with other book stores in the area?
We are the only independently owned bookstore in Broomfield. We have over 26,000 used books in stock and you can expect about 5,000 front list ie books very popular at Barnes and Noble and Amazon bookstores. We also stock books in a very good condition or better.
Sadly almost 15 bookstores have closed in Denver metro area so we attracts book lovers from Thornton, Westminster, Aurora and Denver and welcome bookstore tourists from all over the world. That said your options are limited but we are considered one of Denver's top ten bookstores and also believe used bookstores are on the comeback.
