Lockdown 3.0: “Being in Tier 4 will not stop us…”

And here’s positive news from your local bookshop…

What’s happening?  Are you opening again?

Yes! We will open again on Monday 11 January 2021, at 10am. We will be open again (without browsing), using the ‘Book Takeaway’ model that was so successful in Lockdown 2.0.

What are your opening times during the period you’re in Tier 4?

From 11 January 2021 we will be operating a “shop-front service”, with the shop door open for collections and orders every day from 1000 – 1600, except Wednesday and Sunday.  At least one of us will be there to help you with book orders, ‘click and collect’, and general book related enquiries during those times.

Additionally, because we know that these times might not work for everyone, we will happily arrange collection at a pre-agreed time outside of these core hours.

I can’t get to you; will you deliver?

Of course!  We will be delighted to deliver to our local area (for free), and we’ll do so at a time that is mutually convenient.  Please do use this facility, as we recognise that some people may not wish to venture into the high street at this time, and we want to help you all be safe.

If you want a book to be sent somewhere else in the UK, then please don’t worry, we can easily arrange for that to be done on your behalf, at cost.  We will also add free gift wrapping (birthday or other celebratory event) , should that be helpful to you. 

How can I get books from you?

There are many ways to let us know what you’d like:

  1. Go to the order page on our website (https://cotswoldbookroom.co.uk/ordering/).
  2. Push a handwritten note through our front door, or hand it to us when we’re open.
  3. Send us an e-mail (orders@cotswoldbookroom.co.uk).
  4. Leave us a voicemail message at any time!  Our number is 01453 843140.
  5. Send us a social media direct message (DM) via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. 
  6. If all else fails, try a carrier pigeon.  

How can I pay for my books?

We accept cash and cheques, all major credit and debit cards, and bank transfers.  If you want the books delivered, we are happy to accept cash, cheque, or bank transfer payment.
