Books, Collectibles, & Amazon Used Book Processing Center Apex, NC

I am very happy to announce on March 2nd, in partnership with Elf Ear Collectibles, The Bearded Veteran is opening a local store location. We have been in business for a year and a half and have seen quite a few ups and downs and it is finally happening. 2 March 2019 at 9 am EST will be our soft opening and our grand opening and ribbon slicing ceremony will come later.

1600 Olive Chapel Rd.
Suite 248
Apex, NC 27502

If you are unfamiliar with any of these businesses, allow me to introduce them to you. The Bearded Veteran specializes mostly in used books. Though most of the inventory is sold online through 13 channels, the books in store will be set aside specifically for resellers. We will offer books at a discount and in bulk for resellers to sell online and make a profit. The regular price of most individual books will be $1 and bulk books will be $10 per bag, much like Book Planet. There will also eventually be an honor system outside for books as low as $0.25, similar to Reader's Corner. Join us on 2 March for the soft opening and you will enjoy books for $0.50 and bags of books in bulk for $5.

Now let's talk about our business partner, Elf Ear Collectibles. We will be sharing space, both brick and mortar and online. The owner, Hunter, is a friend of mine and has a passion for games, collectibles, action figures and comic books. If you're into any of these things, I'm sure he will be running specials on opening day as well. Right now our inventory includes plenty of Funko Pops and books, but keep checking in and we will have much more to come.

I want to take a moment and offer a blanket "Thank You" to everyone who has helped us get this far. It's been a long road and I'm sure it will be tough in the next few months, but I know with our hard work and loyal customers, we can make it and offer these great products in a growing local market. Please make sure to keep checking back and we will see you all on 2 March at 9 am for our first day!


  • Discovered your business from Apex Chamber of Commerce member newsletter. I’m excited to see this. I plan to come to the ribbon cutting. I look forward to meeting you and learning more about your business!

  • Stopped in during the soft opening, and this place was great. Can’t make it to the grand opening due to work, but I can’t wait to see how it turns out in the future.
