100 years of innovation and foresight At MBS, we trace our roots back to 1909 and Columbia, Missouri, as the Missouri Store Company. Although we have undergone our share of renaming and structural changes, two things have remained constant: our main facility location in Columbia and our involvement in the educational arena.
Initially a school furniture and teacher supply store, our company officially became MBS Textbook Exchange, LLC in 1973. Since then, we have been regarded as the industry leader in wholesale textbook distribution, building several other core competencies and business objectives along the way.
Our primary goal has been, and always will be, to provide customers with state-of-the-art technology, a dedication to developing genuine and beneficial partnerships, and superior knowledge of the textbook industry to simplify the essentials of a bookstore’s business.
The most intrinsic value MBS can provide you is this ability to simplify all things textbook-related. Our customers, who include bookstore managers and business officers alike, value this simplicity we offer, and we are well positioned to provide you everything your bookstore needs to be successful.
