The company carries a wide array of items that celebrate and preserve popular cultures; this selection will only get richer as Lafayette locals trade in their old treasures for new ones, letting their neighbors experience the magic they once did.

2nd & Charles Lafayette is opening as the Books-A-Million in the same shopping center closes its doors. Sister stores to each other but serving the book community in uniquely different and valuable ways, we're confident Lafayette shoppers will find a new home at 2nd & Charles as well as plenty of new, used, and collectible books to cherish.

A bookstore reimagined for a new generation of readers is now in Lafayette. At 2nd & Charles, shoppers are invited to journey through aisles of new and used books, in addition to vinyl, video games, comic books, toys, autographed collectibles, rare finds, and so much more. It's a place where customer-favorite deals happen every day, like 50% off bestselling hardbacks; every week, like BOGO Wednesdays, and all year long, with their loyalty program, 2nd & Charles Rewards.
