    • Eerdmans Bookstore 2140 Oak Industrial Drive NE [Reader recommended]
      • "...has probably the most comprehensive collection of new commentaries, both their own and from other publishers, which I’ve seen anywhere. They also sell some blemished copies of their own titles at a good discount." (reader comment dated 9/14/12)
    • Reformation Heritage Books 2965 Leonard St NE
      • "[This is] the publishing/bookstore arm of the Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary... In their bookstore they sell at the same discount they show on their website." (reader comment dated 9/14/12)
  • North Carolina
    • Ollie's Bargain Outlet, Gastonia, NC
      • When passing through the Mid-Atlantic states I like to visit Ollie's because they offer a large selection of discounted books which includes a large percentage of recently published Christian books.
    • Ollie's Bargain Outlet, Rocky Mt., NC
      • See note above.
  • Tennessee
    • Moody Books 128 Princeton Road, Johnson City, TN [Reader recommended]
      • "They sell both secular and religious books which are unfortunately all mixed together, but sorted by author. The bookstore is not neat and tidy, and if I had little kids, I wouldn’t take them in there, but for someone looking for older books, this is a good place to look." (reader comment dated 9/14/12)
  • Virginia
