    Great Organization Solution for Small Spaces!

    Customer review by lanternwaste33

    5.0 stars by lanternwaste33

    I'm a young adult beginning to buy the first pieces of my own furniture, and who really needed a shelving unit with a small footprint for my bedroom. I had been eyeing one from IKEA for a long time, but didn't want to have to make the long drive to the store. This Walmart bookcase is so much better -- I'm so glad I bought it instead. The free shipping was awesome, and it arrived in less than a week. I chose the Morgan Cherry finish option. It looks really light colored in the photos, but it is actually a lovely warm brown (which is exactly what I was looking for). It only took me about an hour and a half to assemble it -- which proves how easy it is to put together, considering this was my first time assembling furniture or even using a power-screwdriver! It is nice and narrow to fit in small areas. Deep enough to hold stuff, but not overly deep (as in sticking out in the room). I love that some of the shelves are adjustable, because you can customize it to fit your needs. It's great. I would recommend this to anyone!

    width dimension for product is incorrect

    Customer review by bowlopho

    3.0 stars by bowlopho

    so after hours and hours of looking online for 2 bookcases to put on the side of my tvstand to fill up the wall insert (I measured about 18.25" gap on each side of my tvstand between the stand and the wall) as I opened up the box, I noticed the shelves were pretty wide. I didn't even think about measuring it, instead I trusted Walmart's listed product dimension of the product being 17.75" wide and spent about an hour and some minutes putting it together. I then carried it over toward my tv and low and behold, it's too wide. I grab my measuring tape and the unit measures at 18.75" it's a great cheap bookcase for those that can use it. However, to my dismay, I cannot. Now I have to tear it apart, drive out to Walmart, and return it.

    Wish I'd seen these before I bought Sauder

    Customer review by ThatsMyBag

    4.0 stars by ThatsMyBag

    I was doing a wall of shelves and wound up with a space not big enough for a standard width. Checked online and found these. A perfect fit. When the package arrived, I was amazed at how well protected everything was. There were even corner protectors the full length. I wish I had known about these before I bought my 2nd and 3rd Sauder shelf. My first was nice, but when I went to buy more they had changed design and the sides were no longer 1 piece. This South Shore shelf sides came full length, and even had pieces for across the front and bottom for strength and look. Easy photo directions and I was able to assemble alone ( but the box is quite heavy, had to open in the garage and bring in piece by piece) My only complaint is the shelf pegs are a cheap clear plastic, disappointing after how nice the rest is.

    • I did not bolt my shelf to the wall and it stands perfect with no concerns of tipping over.

    • It can stand on its own. I would not be comfortable with that if there are small children that might try to climb it or pull on it. You could place door stoppers on the front left and right to alleviate any tipping potential.

    • I just put this together and it can stand on it's own. However, after adding some weight to it, it's quite possible with a nudge that it can tumble forward. If you have kids, then I do suggest bolting it to the wall with a nail or a screw. Just screw it in, I know your apartment wont allow it, but when you're getting ready to move out, just buy some Spackle and cover up the hole after you unscrew it.

    • It comes with an L bracket and they do instruct to brace it to the wall for safety. That said, I have no small children or pets that climb, so I did not, and have no problems on a wood floor.

    • Better to use the included hardware to bolt it to the wall.

    • This bookshelf will stand on its own, but we do recommend and advise you use the safety bracket (included) to secure it to the wall.

    I'm looking to use this as a "cubby" in the mudroom and only have a shelf at the bottom and the very top, with the entire middle area open.
    by Amanda 7/30/2014
    • The top two are adjustable and also the one above the base of the bookshelf.

    • from the bottom up, the second, fourth and fifth shelves are adjustable. the third shelf is not. depending on what you are going to use this for, it would probably work. the third shelf could be omitted. the frame is very sturdy. the size of this bookcase is perfect for a very small space. it looks very nice and will blend in with ease. hope you are pleased. I certainly am!!!!

    • The (excluding the top and bottom), the middle shelf is stationary. The remaining shelves are adjustable.

    • When assembling this unit, it calls for a shelf to be place in the middle. Now you could probably omit that middle shelf if you wanted to, but then I would wonder about the sturdiness if it's missing. It seems to be a pretty sturdy unit so maybe not putting in the middle shelf wont harm it. It's worth a shot.

    • There is a stationary shelf in the middle which makes the bookcase sturdy. The three removeable ones can be placed where ever there are holes.

    • If you start from the top, the first two shelves are adjustable, then you have a fixed one and another adjustable shelf. If you have any other question, feel free to contact us.
