Traditional areas of fiction, children's, educational materials, history, religion, cookbooks, comics, hobbies and games, arts and sciences have all been restocked.

The organization has grown since holding sales in warehouses and grocery stores.

New technology such as computers, scanners, and the ability to accept credit cards as well as cash and checks has enhanced sales.
