Rivertown Textbooks has announced a unique new service for the students of Texas State.
A primarily web-based company, Rivertown Textbooks said it provides students a distinctive textbook shopping, buyback, and rental service characterized by unprecedented convenience, enabling students to save time and money.
Customers will be able to create their own accounts on the Rivertown Textbooks website, enter their class schedules and rent or purchase required class materials, which will be delivered to their residences. Rivertown Textbooks said it offers used book prices that are generally lower than competing college bookstores. Similarly, real-time buyback prices and a pick-up and pay systems allow students to sell textbooks without leaving home.
College textbooks have always constituted a significant portion of higher education costs, but have considerably risen in the past couple of decades. Founded by college students, Rivertown Textbooks said it is responding to a need to streamline textbook costs and introduce new options.
Until now, students at Texas State have not been afforded the opportunity to rent textbooks. According to the National Association of College Stores (NACS), there were 17.7 million college students enrolled in classes for the 2006 semester, all of whom spent roughly $650 on required textbooks that year. Rivertown Textbooks said its fixed price rental option, would enable that student to spend only $339 each year. The company also said its delivery service, coupled with a satisfaction guarantee, will assure students a stress-free experience.
