Our Virtual Warehouse Sales

This June and July we brought our famous Warehouse Sale to your email inbox, with thousands of books at deep discounts, available to shop for a limited time only. These "Virtual" Warehouse Sales will take place exclusively at hbswarehousesale.com, featuring bargains on thousands of remainders. Stay tuned! We plan to open our "digital doors" again with more books and more bargains. If you don't already get our email newsletter, sign up at harvard.com/subscribe. Newsletter subscribers will be the first to learn aobut the next Virtual Warehouse Sale!

Virtual Warehouse Sale Details

Please allow for processing time before your order ships, which may take as much as two weeks for some orders. Orders will be processed and mailed out in the order that they were received. All orders will be shipped USPS Media Mail. Our warehouse booksellers will gather and pack your orders as speedily as possible—given safety protocols, social distancing, and the limited number of staff safely allowable in the workspace—during the age of COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Remainders are new books made available at dramatically discounted prices, typically 40-80% off the original list price. As you browse our virtual sale, please note "HC" = hardcover and "PB" = paperback. Copies of remaindered books may be marked by the publisher or distributor with "remainder marks." Most remainders are marked with a stroke with a felt-tipped marker across the top or bottom of the book's pages, near the spine.

Supplies are limited at the Virtual Warehouse Sale. Many products will sell out! 

Please Note:

  •  Virtual Warehouse Sale purchases are final—non-refundable and non-returnable.

  • These titles are not eligible for purchase elsewhere—they are only available at this time at hbswarehousesale.com.

  • As you browse, please note "HC" = hardcover and "PB" = paperback.

Our Warehouse Sale

Harvard Book Store Warehouse Historically we have opened up the doors of our Somerville Warehouse for the public several times a year, as book lovers explore stacks upon stacks of thoughtfully curated bargain books. The wildly popular Warehouse Sales (#HBSWarehouseSale on social media) generally take place at the end of June, the beginning of December, and on Presidents' Day each year. This has all changed in the era of COVID-19. Check out hbswarehousesale.com for our "Virtual" Warehouse Sale, and thanks for supporting Harvard Book Store!
