Eljay's Used Books is now Rickert & Beagle Books!
Way back in 1997, Frank (Jason) Oreto and Louise Richardson moved from Tennessee to Pittsburgh and opened Eljay's Used Books. In 2010 their friend Chris Rickert joined the ownership team in anticipation of Louise's impending retirement. When Louise retired in 2012, Frank started thinking that the whole retirement thing might not be such a bad idea, and is now enjoying a life of full time child-rearing and fiction writing. Chris Rickert decided to team up with author Peter S Beagle, and on October 1st, 2013, Rickert & Beagle Books was born! Just like Eljay's, the new store is full of strange books and ever stranger people. All store credit and gift certificates from Eljay's will be honored, as will the 10% discount for customers who wear their Eljay's t-shirt into the store.
Our new site (which is currently under construction) can be found at www.rickertandbeaglebooks.com, and you can contact Chris during regular store hours at 412-344-7444. Please be patient as we upgrade our online presence!
