This week’s Events Buzz is a little different, since it’s in two parts. There’s so much information that we don’t want you missing a single word!
We continue the celebration of April as National Poetry Month, as well as our own concentration on horror to go with the poet T.S. Eliot’s line “April is the cruellest month…” You’ll find plenty of poetry titles and horror titles on our shelves, with more arriving daily.
There’s exciting news about the renovation of the parking lot at the 65 James Street Plaza, which may have a temporary impact on our customers, but we will do our utmost to continue to provide the best possible service for you. Details will be laid out in the second part of our Monday blog.
WE WILL BE OPEN DURING THE PARKING LOT’S REFURBISHMENT.
Take advantage of our services:
- Come in and get a complementary cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or bottled water; peruse our New Arrivals shelf for used book trade-ins and our publisher displays of new books for children, teens, and adults, as well as our vintage titles from the 1890s to the 1970s.
- Our new books are discounted at either 20%, 25%, 30%, 40% and 50% off list prices for your shopping needs. As always, our used books range from 50% to 90% off of cover price, and there are additional savings for our newsletter subscribers. We also offer an educator discount for teachers, certified homeschoolers, and licensed daycare centers.
- Our selection changes daily, with customer trade-ins of used titles as well as shipments from publishers and wholesalers. You are bound to find something for any interest, and we take special orders and do book searches as well.
- Don’t forget! We also offer “from our door to your door” mail order fulfillment, just one of the many ways in which we serve you, our customers, as Worcester’s full-service bookstore.
