Attic Books is open again, with limited hours (Mon-Sat 10-5).
Maximum of 10 customers in the store at a time.
NO BOOK BUYING AT THE MOMENT: We are currently not taking in new stock over the counter for cash or store credit and will not be making appointments or taking drop ins. That will of course change in the future but not until we feel it is safe for staff and customers to take in new stock.
We will be offering Curbside Delivery as well as free local delivery for orders of $25 and over (fee of $5 for orders under $25). We will have cash but encourage use of debit and credit as the machine is a heck of a lot easier to sanitize for everyone’s safety. 😉
Caution: Every book in the store will not be sanitized so please use hand sanitizer before and after handling the books. We will be sanitizing and cleaning frequently touched surfaces, such as the doors, counters, debit and cash area and chairs. If you have handled a book but do not want it, please place it on the counter for a staff member to sanitize and reshelve it.
We will be accepting phone, email, DM and online orders at this time.
You can call ahead (519-432-7277) or email us (email@example.com) with a book list and we can see if we have them in stock.
If we do, we can process everything over the phone, accepting Visa and M/C or Paypal via email. No cash or debit at this time.
