We've missed you, and are excited to have you back in the store ... with some changes.
An Appointment? Seriously?
Alas, yes. We take public health seriously, and will continue to exercise caution. We think an appointment system will allow us to do what we do best while also managing the number of people in the store in an efficient way.
You will notice a few changes. For starters, we've re-arranged some of the sections to allow for better social distancing. In addition to the now-standard requirement of (a) sanitizing your hands prior to entering the store, (b) keeping your mask on at all time (i.e., no food or drink), and (c) we will insist you maintain an unimpeded distance of 6+ feet from everyone not in your party -- including our booksellers. Our new section arrangements will hopefully help facilitate this without getting in the way of joyful browsing!
You'll also notice that we've removed chairs. Sorry, we just can't yet accommodate the sit-down browse. Should health concerns require a chair, let us know.
Also, please note that we're offering two types of appointment. Choose according to your needs.
Also note: we're eliminated the deposit for your appointment.
