Our October Hours are Monday through Saturday 10-6 and Sundays from 11-4.
Did you know that October is the new December?
Consider this a PSA from your friendly neighborhood bookstore. We want to let you know about potential supply issues as we head towards the Holiday shopping season. There is a real concern in the industry about the availability of some popular titles that folks will be looking for in November and December. There’s a perfect storm brewing due to a number of factors that are about to converge this season:
• Ongoing paper shortages
• A severe lack of printing capacity in the USA
• A huge number of titles were pushed from Spring/Summer to Fall/Winter release dates. This will put even more pressure on printing facilities
• Longer ship times for books printed overseas
• Social distancing regulations in production/fulfillment facilities mean fewer workers and longer processing times.
What does this mean for you? Shop Early! If there’s a forthcoming title you’re looking forward to, go ahead and place a pre-order with us. We suspect many popular books will go out of stock by mid Nov. or early Dec. and not be available again until January. We’d hate for you to be disappointed during the Holidays. It's 2020 - the unexpected is always expected.
We have been busy ordering and stocking our shelves with fabulous books, puzzles, games, cards, calendars and other goodies. Our holiday wrapping paper rolls are out of their boxes and ready to go. We look forward to helping you select perfect gifts!
