We are delighted to announce that we are going to be re-opening the shop on Tuesday 23rd June. (please read on)
We will be open Tuesday – Thursday 0900 – 1330 for collecting at the shop or for calling it to request a book, and at all time for orders via website, e-mail, social media or phone.
Card Payments ONLY.💳
Our space is quite limited which does pose some challenges for social distancing, but we are confident that we can implement all the guidelines to ensure safe shopping for customers and staff.
We have decided to take small steps towards fully reopening...
From 23rd June until 2nd July we will be operating a click and collect scheme. This means no physical browsing in the shop but what we can offer is:
- Contact us by phone, e mail or via social media to order a book, pay by card over the phone. Your book can then be collected from the shop, delivered free in the local area or posted out to you at a small charge.
- Choose a book on the website and pay - call in to collect or we can deliver locally (free)
- Call in to the shop if you have a specific title in mind, we can handover a book to you and you can make payment there (by card only). It would be helpful if you get in touch first or check our Near St to see if its in stock.
- Cards, Book Vouchers and Maps will also be available to purchase.
- A 10% discount off all books ordered and paid for between 23rd June and 30th June (including email, phone, website and social media).
From 7th July our intention is to open the shop for browsing with strict hygiene and social distancing rules in place.
We will gradually increase opening hours extending from 7th July onwards.
We would like to thank all of you who have continued to support us during lockdown, buying books and following us on social media, your support is very much appreciated.
On Monday 22nd we will select one customer at random who has ordered from us during lockdown (whether you've ordered through email, website, phone or social media) to receive a £10 voucher to spend in our shop! ✨
All purchases made during lockdown will be added to your loyalty account. If you haven’t got one just e mail us with your details and we will set one up.
We are really excited to be back in the shop and look forward to seeing you very soon. 😁
Rock Pool by Heather Buttivant
As most of us are currently unable to spend time at the beach, why not pick up a copy of the wonderful Rock Pool now in paperback?! Her vivid writing transports you to the shoreline where I'm sure you would prefer to be...💭🌊
Heather kindly offered to speak a little more about her book and read an excerpt to give you a taste of what the book has to offer.
The price is £9.99, and we are currently offering a 10% discount on purchases of this book.
Unfortunately our bookshop is currently closed in line with the government restrictions.
However our 'virtual' book shop remains open! We are still able to source many books (old and new) and have them posted directly to your nominated address, for a small postage fee.
