With the rising statistics of COVID across our state, we still believe it is unwise to put ourselves and our staff at risk and re-open. So, for the time being, we are still closed for regular browsing. Unfortunately, this also means our loss of “normal” sales (we are operating at around 40-50% of normal sales) means tough times ahead. We are working on a few other plans in the meantime, so thanks for your patience as we all navigate these murky waters.
Our curbside team, meanwhile, has been rocking and rolling. The curbside orders have helped tremendously, and we so appreciate all your support this spring and summer. We know that you could make your purchases elsewhere, and you choosing to drive downtown to pick-up your books means we stay in business. Conversely, if you’d rather your books be delivered to your doorstep, we ship to home as well!
Our curbside service is open Monday-Saturday, 11am-7pm.
We continue to monitor what’s going on locally and across our state. Trust me, I want to be open, more than anyone else. Frankly, we put it seven hard years of work and momentum into this business, and I’m scared that we’ll hit 2021 right back where we started. I try to remind myself that everything changes and nothing is permanent. I also have hope that we can come out of this as a stronger public, a stronger community, and a stronger bookstore.
Thank you for your support these last four months. Hopefully, with luck, we’ll see you soon.
Mike, Hilary and everyone at Literati
