During the month of January the Library Friends of Payson Bookstore is featuring a storewide clearance sale. All items are being offered at two for the price of one.
This includes all books, hard cover as well as paperbacks, videos, puzzles and items in the 50 cent area. Shoppers can mix and match.
The second must be of equal or lesser value than the first item. It’s a great way to ensure that you have plenty of reading and viewing material for the cold winter months.
