Our response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

UPDATE – Alert level 2

We will be opening from Tuesday 19th May normal hours apply. (Books are still available to be purchased online).
Our understanding is that we can open the doors but will need to maintain high levels of hygiene, and maintain a social distance of 1 meter between groups of customers.
We are limiting the number of people in the shop to maintain the meter spacing as we do not have a lot of room.  We will only have 8 people in the bookshop at any one time, for up to 2 hours.
Specifically we will ask customers to:
1) Use the hand sanitiser provided at the door.
2) Maintain a more than 1 meter space.
3) Please respect other customers social distance.
4) Be kind.
Our eftpos DOES NOT have paywave, and we will be keeping the eftpos and counter area sanitised.
We will still happily accept cash.  You can put your purchase in one of our paper bags if you choose to, bringing your own bags would be best. We hope you will come in and enjoy the bookshop.

However – if you are unwell – please stay at home.
Purchases online can continue and will need to be prepaid to our bank account or via Paypal through our online shop. Yes, we can send you an invoice but will still need to be paid before pickup or posting.
