Holiday Update 2020 - Shop Early, Shop Local!

New! Shop Holiday Books

To Our Customers:

Retailers are anticipating serious supply-chain challenges this Fall, and we are no exception.  Due to paper shortages, the closure of printers, and shipping delays, coupled with limits on our in-store capacity, we expect this holiday shopping season to be very different from previous years.

Some important things for you to bear in mind:

  • SHOP EARLY! Please choose In-Store Pickup or Ground Shipping at checkout for holiday gifts.
  • Pre-order the books you really want. Pre-orders can be placed on our website - just search by author or title.
  • We have limited in-store shopping hours & customer capacity. If you expect to need more than 20 minutes to shop, please book a private shopping appointment outside of our normal opening hours.

Whenever possible, please order online or email us instead of calling our stores. We have limited staff available to answer the phone.

Please be patient with our booksellers and understand that we may run out of certain titles. Know that we are working as hard as we can to get you your orders in time for the holidays, but so much is out of our hands this year. We will do our best to communicate with you quickly & honestly when we expect delays. 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support this year! We love being your local bookstore.

-The Oblong Staff
