Books on Consignment

Magers and Quinn welcomes inquiries from authors and publishers about having our store carry your book. Before you contact us, please read the guidelines provided here. We get many such inquiries and have guidelines to help manage the process. Please understand, we do not have the means to carry every book that is presented to us.

Once you begin the consignment process below, you are responsible for understanding and agreeing to this information. If we are able to carry your book, we will contact you with next steps.

If your book is available through a publisher or distributor please see: Books available through publishers or distributors.

Consignment Books:

  • Priority is given to authors and materials that have a MN local and regional connection and appeal.
  • We select books based on criteria such as sales potential in our store and if/how they complement our inventory at the time.

Consignment Process:

  1. Please understand we are not able to meet for cold calls and drop-ins. Instead, send information about your book to:

    New Book Buyer
    Magers and Quinn Booksellers
    3038 Hennepin Ave. S.
    Minneapolis, MN 55408

    Sample copies are helpful, but please note we receive a lot of material and will process the sample at our discretion by donating or gifting it, unless it is accepted for consignment. We are not able to return sample copies.
  2. Provide contact information with your inquiry. If we are able to carry your book we will contact you with next steps.
  3. If we are able to carry your book, we will ask that you promote our store and let people know your book can be purchased at Magers and Quinn. So plan to do promotion:

    • Include information about our store on your website
    • Contact local media, mailing lists, book clubs to announce that your book is available at Magers and Quinn
    • Tell family, friends and other contacts to buy your book at Magers and Quinn

Books available through publishers or distributors:

If your book (or related item) is available through a publisher or distributor, please mail information about the book for consideration, along with ordering information to the address below. We are not able to return sample copies. If you send a sample copy, please note we receive a lot of material and will process the sample at our discretion by donating or gifting it, unless we are able to carry the book.

New Book Buyer
Magers and Quinn Booksellers
3038 Hennepin Ave. S.
Minneapolis, MN 55408

If we are interested in carrying your book, we will contact you or the publisher or distributor, as directed.

Non-book items:

Since we are in the book business, other items we consider carrying are those related to books or those which customers have requested over time. Discount terms are different for non-book items. For consideration of non-book items follow the same steps as for the Consignment Process.

Kindly read the information above before contacting us. If we are able to carry your book we will contact you. If you have not had your question answered here, you may contact books@magersandquinn.com, subject "Consignment: [Your book's title]".
