CampusBookRentals

We were founded as CampusBookRentals in the summer of 2007 by a college student who couldn’t make sense of textbook prices, and the inefficiencies that seemed to be driving them up. He proposed that renting textbooks might be part of the answer. The concept took off, creating one of the fastest growing companies in America and forever changing the rules of the ten billion dollar higher education content industry.

In the fall of 2009, we became the first to bring textbook rentals right to the campus itself through an innovative store partnership that delivered real value to students and the store. In December 2012, after nearly a year of joint development, we acquired a full campus retail and warehouse management platform, sometimes referred to as a point of sale, and branded the technology Sidewalk Pro. Now our full suite of college store retail solutions fall under the Sidewalk umbrella. For more information about Pro, Rent, Marketplace and Promote, please visit:
