Visiting The Store
Stop in for a browse! Please know that we are operating at limited occupancy (10%, which boils down to 8 customers at a time) for a more comfortable book shopping experience; you may be asked to wait outside for a few short minutes. We require that everyone wear a mask, and are sanitizing your hands at the door.
We kindly ask all of our customers to please be patient with us as we prioritize a safe and comfortable space for everyone!
How do I know if something is in stock?
“In stock now” means something is physically on our shelves and we can guarentee same or next day pick up.
“Special orders” are books we can order from distributors, ship times listed on the website are an estimate of when they will get to the store and don’t include the time it takes us to process the order or ship to customers.
“Special order -- may be slow to obtain” means our distributors are waiting for stock. We don’t recommend ordering these if you need them soon.
“No price, may not be available” these books are likely out of print, or out of stock at our distributors and we can’t get them.
When in doubt, leave a note!
Use the "instructions" field over the PO field, we can see the message easier.
Use this field for any communication with our orders team including: special shipping instructions, e-gift card requests, gift card numbers, notes to include to recipients, requests to use store credit, etc.
