Many local Atlanta bookstores are getting creative to ensure you and your family can still have access to all the books, games, and other items you need to stay entertained, educated, and comforted during the coronavirus quarantine. Some great examples: A Cappella Books is currently offering curbside service or FREE in-town delivery (within 10-mile radius of store) of in-stock purchases when you order online, Eagle Eye Books is offering FREE shipping on orders over $10, and Little Shop of Stories is offering FREE curbside service and FREE same-day delivery in the 30030 and neighboring zip codes. These are just a few examples and stores are changing their options day-to-day. While most bookstores have closed their physical locations to customers for browsing, some are still open with reduced hours. 

Warehouse stores and big chains will likely survive this crisis, but many of our beloved local bookstores may not. Now is the time to stock up on books for your personal reading and to purchase books, toys, and games you can give as gifts. Gift cards are another way you can support your local bookstore. Buying gift cards for yourself or others will bring funds into these local businesses now and give you something to look forward to using in the future. Check out the websites and social media pages of your favorite bookstore to find out your shopping and shipping/delivery options or simply give their friendly staff a call today. Our bookstores make our community better—let’s show them our support!
