The shop will be open for limited hours – Tuesday – Friday 10.30am – 3.30pm and Saturday 10.30am – 2.00pm
What does that mean for the customer and the staff? 
Information is provided on the Covid 19.govt.nz website.

We can still sell you books or cards or other items from our website and you can pick up from the shop or have us post or courier purchases to you.
Contactless pick up from the front door is during shop hours.
Please note – we don’t have ‘tap and go’ facilities, but will be cleaning the eftpos machine after use. All our stock is on our website under Books (https://writersplot.org.nz/books/)
You can email us at writersplotreadersread@outlook.com if you have any question.

Keeping our volunteers and customers safe is our priority, so please be patient and be kind to each other. Kia kaha.
