We have THREE events taking place this week!
NATIONAL TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK: Sun, May 2nd-Sat, May 8th we have increased our teachers’ discount from 10% to 15%! Just show an ID with your educator’s status, and save a little more this week in the store.
AUTHOR EVENT: Thu, May 6th from 6pm-8pm we have Bryan Barrera, founder and co-owner of DC Dog Runner, and author of The Ultimate Guide to Running With Your Dog, here at the store, as part of the Dog Days of Summer event in Del Ray. He will be here to answer questions and talk about his new book, which we will also have available for purchase. This is a free, outdoor event, and the store will be open later than usual, if you’d also like to come in and shop!
SIDEWALK BOOK SALE: Sat, May 8th-Sun, May 9th we’re having another sidewalk sale! Our first was so much fun, we decided to do it again! There will be three ways to save:
- We will have a selection of books 50% off our already discounted prices available outside;
- Bargain books for $2.00 or less will be outside in the parking lot and inside the store;
- All of the other books inside the store will be 10% off!
We’ve been open since August, and are putting more books up on the shelves daily, so come by and see what’s new!
We have hand sanitizer by the front door, and are following guidelines set by the city to stay safe during this pandemic. We are also now offering private shopping hours by appointment, and we are happy to put together an order for pick up if you’re more stringently isolating. You can also purchase gift certificates if you’d like to support us during the pandemic, but aren’t ready to come in yet!
We are currently working on our not-for-profit status, and are looking at opportunities to give back to the community. We are also happy to have volunteers come in and help with shelving – it’s a lot of work getting a new business up and running!
We hope to see you soon, and we’re so grateful for how welcoming everyone has been so far. We’re so happy to be here in Del Ray!
