It’s Always Something

August 28th, 2015

So… our Mac is in on the fritz. It’s currently being poked and prodded by smart technical people. But it does leave us with a wee problem: until we get it back, everyone’s special orders are… inaccessible.

To be clear: the ORDERS are accessible. The books keep arriving. We have a big stack of titles we know are destined for specific customers. But at the moment, we don’t exactly know who those customers are.

Erm.

So if you’re waiting for a special order, please drop us a line. Or call us. Or heck, stop by. We’ll be glad to see you, and we can make sure you get your books.

Sorry, We Can’t Hear You…

August 27th, 2015

A broken water main* has taken out the phone lines. So for the next little while, you’re unlikely to be able to reach us by phone. Also, we’re able to accept only VISA and MC. No debit until the phone line comes back up. Sorry about that.

Could be worse. The main could have broken in front of the store. Then we’d be phoneless AND wet.

*near Harbord Bakery.

Reminder!

August 14th, 2015

We’ll be closed next week (August 17-23) for renovations. Which means you should all stop by this weekend to pick up next week’s reading.

We’ll open as usual (hopefully looking a little neater, even if not finished) on Monday August 24th.

And We’re Off!

August 10th, 2015

Our reno team started bright and early this morning. We’ll be under construction for the next mumble-many weeks but – and this is important – we will still be open.

With one exception: we’ll be closed August 17th-23rd so they can accomplish one specific thing on the main floor. Other than that, the construction will be upstairs, and we’ll be open as usual. Noisy, perhaps, and probably a bit dusty, but open.

It’s exciting! And a bit nerve-wracking. But mostly exciting!

 

Movie Tickets!

August 5th, 2015

Psst! Wanna see NO ESCAPE, starring Owen Wilson, Lake Bell, and Pierce Brosnan?
