When ordering online, if it says "Backordered or Special Order", please check with us before placing your order. Due to COVID shutting down several large printers as well as books being in higher demand, many books are out of stock. When ordering from us online, please note if it says "USUALLY SHIPS IN 1-5 DAYS", that means our warehouse has stock and we CAN get it in 4-5 business days. If it says "Backordered" please call or email us for an estimated date of restock hitting the warehouse, or it is possible we have it IN STOCK here at Townie Books. If it says "Special Order" that means our warehouse doesn't have any in stock OR any on order so we would have to seek other sources that are slower. Thanks for shopping virtually at Townie Books!
We believe in readers. We believe in books. We believe in the power of the written word. We believe in the magic of children discovering the world of books. We believe in this community. We believe that people prefer buying books from their friendly neighborhood bookstore rather than a faceless company. We believe in browsing for hours with a good cup of tea. We believe in staying up until 2 in the morning because you just can’t put a book down.
