Next Day Curbside Pickup

The best way to get books from us right now is still our complimentary shipping, but after some trial and error, we are now able to offer Next Day Curbside Pickup for those of you who are downtown.  There are, of course, some caveats and limitations given the state of...well, everything right now.  Items not currently on our shelves, obviously, will see a bit of a delay before they can be picked up as we wait for them to arrive in-store.  Additionally, we need time to process your order, so the cutoff for next day pickups is 4pm.  Our pickup hours are 10-4, Tueday-Thursday and 11-7pm Friday-Saturday.  We do not currenly have pickup hours on Sunday or Monday. 


How to Order:  With most of our staff in different locations, the best way to place an order for curbside pickup is online.  Just select "Next Day Curbside Pick Up" as your shipping option.  All curbside orders must include a textable phone number so that you can be alerted that your order has been received for processing, and then again when your order is ready to be picked up.  Please do not plan to pick up your order until after you have received that notification, which should be the following day for orders placed before 4pm Monday-Friday.  Orders placed after 4pm may need an additional day to process.

Please be aware that orders placed on Saturday and Sunday will not be available for pickup until Monday.


How to Pick Up: Once you've received your text notification that your order is ready, you can pick it up during pick up hours only: 10-4pm Tuesday through Thursday, and 11-7pm Friday &Saturday.  Our store backs onto a convenient alley, accessible from Union Street and the State Street public parking lots.  Just pull in and give us a quick call or text on our pick-up hotline:


We'll collect your order and bring it out to you!
