Number of Products
With more than 90,000 products to choose from online, it’s easy to see why we can help be the place to come to!

Product Availability
We want our guests to know the status and availability of the products they wish to order. Products that are in stock will be displayed appearing on the product detail page for each item listed. You will also be able to see the number available for each item.

If the item does nto show up in a search or if the “Online Stock” says “Out of Stock” it means the product is unavailable for shipment and thus cannot be purchased at this time.

Product Descriptions
We receive our Product Descriptions directly from the distributor for the items we carry.  Sometimes, however, only a minimum or basic description is available. We will do our very best to post as much information as we can about each item. 

Product Images
We make every effort to provide an image of each product on our site. There will be some products for which a photo image is unavailable. We are sorry that some products may have no images, but want you to know that we are constantly seeking images that accurately picture the item. Actual product may vary from the image shown.

Pricing
All prices are listed in US dollars. If your order is unusually heavy, will be shipped overseas, or has other special requirements, we will contact you via email prior to processing the order to advise of the total for shipping and handling charges. We cannot confirm the price of an item online until you order.

All prices in our online store reflect prices for products purchased online and do not include cost of shipment or taxes.

Information Collected
What information do we collect and how do we use it?

  • When you order, we need to know your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status.
  • When you enter a Giveaway, or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address, and email address so we can administer the Giveaway and notify winners. If you win, we may publish your name.
  • When you submit a customer review, we ask that you use google review so it directly downloads to our site. 
  • When you sign up for one of our email newsletters, we need only your name and email address — which we use to send the information you requested.

Telephone Number

Customers providing us with their telephone numbers on their My Account Page or Order Page  may get a telephone contact from us about the status of an online order.

Sales Tax
State Sales tax for US addresses is charged only on orders sent within the state of Michigan.

Michigan state laws require that we charge a 6% sales tax on the full amount of the order including shipping and handling.

Use Tax

We have no physical presence in any other state.  If your state requires sales tax collection, it would be required of the guest to report and pay for the sales tax. 

Tax Exempt Sales (Churches)

Churches can set up tax exempt status after purchasing items.  Simply email your receipt and tax exempt forms to support@greatlakesbookstore.com and we will set up your exempt account and refund any taxes that you paid on your order. You can also apply for our account credit line, and pay monthly by invoiced statement. Find out more about that here. 

Cancel or Modify An Order
Due to the fact that most online customers are expecting their items in a timely manner, the warehouse retrieval and fulfillment process moves quickly.

An order cannot be cancelled or modified once you have submitted it electronically.

Please submit your order only after you have verified that your order is complete and for the products desired.
