Premier Partnership

With MBS’ Premier Partnership, stores receive priority access to more books, reduced costs and additional savings that puts money back into your store’s budget. We provide stores with unrivaled support and help streamline course material management.

“MBS has shown a consistent commitment to the campus store and provides the type of service and products that we need. Used books are still an important element for us. Having a partner who is committed to supplying those resources to the campus store is very important,” said OSU Beaver Store Chief Academic Materials Officer James Howard.

“I have always felt MBS really listens to their clients’ needs and concerns. They always try to accommodate our requests, but never in my wildest dreams would I have believed that we could accomplish this project within six weeks,” Patricia Clark, General Manager of Commodore Books & More, Lorain County Community College, said. “We had several significant goals for the redesign. We wanted a professional top-notch site, to increase sales, to streamline the ordering process, to reduce the number of calls to the store, add additional information concerning bookstore policy and improve our website’s efficiency. Our rep’s expertise is beyond words. He went above and beyond our expectations with the end product.”
