Seminary Co-op Bookstore

5757 S. University Ave.
Chicago , IL , United States
(773) 752-4381

Established in 1961 by a group of 17 bibliophiles, this community-owned shop is now considered one of the world’s finest academic bookstores and has expanded to two additional locations in Chicago. The flagship store, situated on University Avenue in Hyde Park, is set in the basement of the former Chicago Theological Seminary, a stately red-brick structure built in the 1920’s. Inside the shop, a maze of closely packed, floor-to-ceiling shelves house more than 150,000 titles covering everything from philosophy to literature to economics. Patrons can become members of the co-op to receive a 10 percent discount on most purchases.
