The shop is now fully open from 9.30am – 4.30pm

29th June 2020

Dear Customers,

After a successful couple of weeks with the business running on limited opening hours and restrictions on where customers could go in the shop, we are delighted to announce that Mostly Books is now fully open for browsing from 9.30am – 4.30pm.

Shop Safety

We are doing everything we can to keep the shop safe and germ-free and, to help us do so, we require all customers to hand sanitise when they enter and leave the shop.  Gloves will be provided for customers but will not be compulsory.  Customers will be asked to follow a one-way system and there will be no more than six customers allowed in the shop at any one time. The team are working at a social distance and the shop surfaces, books and floors will be thoroughly cleaned every day.


We are continuing to offer a delivery service within a five-mile radius, (where required). Deliveries will be taking place three times a week on Monday, Wednesday & Friday until otherwise stated.  If you need your books sooner than we are able to deliver, you are welcome to pop into the shop from 9.30am – 4.30pm to pick up your order.

As more people are going to be out and about, if you are not in when we attempt delivery and there is no safe place to leave the order, we will return the stock to the shop and keep it until you are ready to collect.  If you are self-isolating, please let us know and we will attempt a re-delivery.

Similarly, we will be sending books via the post twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays.  If you need the book to arrive by a specific date, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate the request.  Note that there will be an additional charge if first-class postage is required.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with deliveries, please email us:

Website, Telephone & Email Orders

After the successful launch of the Mostly Books online shop, we will continue to ensure that our website is kept up-to-date with all of our current stock after we re-open.  As always, feel free to contact us via the contact forms on the website, email or telephone with any queries or orders for books that we don’t have in stock.

Browsing Slots

Due to the success of our private browsing slots over the last couple of weeks, we have decided to keep them running on an on-going basis. Watch this space for details.

We are extremely excited to be opening the shop up fully and shop to see you soon.

Many thanks, as always, for your continued support.

Sarah & the Mostly Books team
