Treesavers Book Outlet

In our continuing series on businesses located in Franklin, I decided to implement a modification to "Management by walking around" by changing it to "Blogging by walking around". Friday afternoon, I had some errands to do so I decided to do them all on foot and found myself at Treesavers Book Outlet.

Kerry DiGiandomenico has been operating Treesavers Book Outlet for 14 years. He took it over from the previous owner when they ran into difficulty with RT 140 under construction and traffic to the store cut sharply.

With the Honey Dew in front of the plaza also closed for renovations, traffic has dropped, so Kerry is looking for other ways to draw in used book buyers.

LeeRoy U Bailey, Jr will be at Treesavers on Saturday May 2, to sign his book; A Different Perspective on How to Reach Heaven: You Must Be Born Again.

LeeRoy will be on site at Treesavers from noon to 4:00 PM. For more information you can email LeeRoy at or visit his website here.

Treesavers is a good alternative to the big booksellers for anything popular. As the picture mosaic shows, there are plenty of books with many of the major categories (Ficton, Non-Fiction, Horror, Mystery, Romance, etc.) that you would find in other book stores.

Kerry also deals in collectables. There were stacks of KISS dolls and posters amongst the stacks of books.

Audio books (books on tape or CD) are also available.

Each section of the books is generally alphabetized by author last name to make finding the book easier. Kerry tells the story of one couple who would bring him a set of index cards with author and titles. This was the listing of books that they had already read. Kerry would then keep an eye out for books not on their list, put them aside and when there were a few call them. They would come in to buy that set of books and update the listing on the index cards. Alas, the couple have both passed away now but this is the kind of place and service that Treesavers provides.

With money tight, the urge to read still prevalent, consider the low cost option to buying used books. Visit Treesavers and help support a Franklin business.

Treesavers Book Outlet is located at 391 West Central, in the same plaza as Edwins, AutoZone and Honey Dew.

    Can you imagine dying and NOT going to Heaven??

    Neither could I! This being the one and only book that I have ever read on Reaching Heaven, I must admit that when I got it I could not put it down!! It covers every aspect of Heaven and points out the necessary things that people could change in order to reach Heaven. The author also shows how heaven is an integral part of Biblical faith. Well written and thought-provoking. I especially liked the "important numbers" section (this was very original!) as well as the section about his own personal life and experience with finding the Holy Ghost. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has questions about Heaven now, and after we get there. It is truly an INSPIRING book worth reading!!

    This book will change your life! December 8, 2008
    By ms. kaye from Worcester, MA (read all my reviews)

    "" A Different Perspective on How to reach Heaven" is a powerful and inspiring spiritual book for those who truly want to experience a changed life in Jesus Christ. Personally, this book deepened my understanding of the Christian walk with its many scriptural references, explanation of the gospel, and the doctrine of Christ Jesus, in addition to the author's powerful testimony of faith after coming from the Island of Jamaica. I highly recommend this book to everyone."
