We now have an answer to this – from Tuesday the 16th of June!!! We’re very excited to be able to open our doors again and show you all of the beautiful books we’ve been hoarding since closing. And we’ve got lots of new stock arriving every day too.
But we also appreciate that this is still a very strange and unsettling time for a lot of people. We’ll be doing our best to make everyone feel safe and comfortable, and in order to do this, we’ll putting a few things in place.
- We’re limiting the number of customers in the shop at any one time to 2. We have a small space, and 2 people feels like a sensible and manageable number to us. So when you visit, you may need to queue outside for a little while to gain entry. We hope you understand.
- We are asking people to sanitise their hands on entry. Bookshopping means handling books and this is the best way to keep everyone safe. If you can’t use the sanitiser, just ask the bookseller to handle the books for you, or give you information. We’re happy to help.
- We’ll be encouraging contactless card payments. This is the safest payment method for everyone. However, we understand that lots of our customers use cash, so we will still take this as a payment method. Rest assured, we will be washing or sanitising our hands after handling cash.
- We’ll have limited opening hours in the first instance. This is so we can do lots of other things – clean the shop thoroughly at the end of each day, catch up on email/Facebook orders, deliver to local customers who are still unable to come in, offer private shopping appointments to those who need them. As these things become less necessary, we will look at extending our opening hours.
We know this is a lot of information to take on board, but we’re sure that soon it will become second nature, and everyone will be enjoying their book-loving shopping experience once more. We look forward to seeing you.
