This family moved into their new home in Chinley just       before lock down and couldn’t wait to come to the bookshop!

Your Visit (for those of you who haven’t been yet)

Customers can collect some gloves as they enter the shop, this means they will be able to handle the books safely – for themselves, other customers and us. We simply don’t have the space, or the quantity of stock, for it to be put in ‘isolation for 72 hours’ I hope you will understand. There will also be hand sanitiser available to use on leaving. We would like you to bring your own mask if you wish to, there will be a screen on the desk at checkout. We can still offer help to anyone who asks, just at a safe distance. Only 1 or 2 people will be in the shop at any one time, in different rooms. Unless they are from the same household.

Home Deliveries

We shall continue with home deliveries indefinitely for those who don’t feel safe coming to the shop, or who are unable to.

Our thanks again, and continue to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and well.
