We are proud to announce that our book shop is officially open for business, and what a start we have had!
On Monday, the 8th of June 2017, Books and Bobs opened its doors for the first time, welcoming a crowd of book lovers of all ages.
Since then, we’ve had a great first week of sales. People from all over town have come in to peruse our shelves, picking up books, stationery, and all manner of books and bobs.
In the past week, we have already sold:
- 50% of our YA novels.
- 70% of our school books
- and a whopping 90% of our stationery supplies!
We’re already ordering more stock in as we type this, so don’t think you will come in to find us out of stock!
We’ve also had some surprises in our first week. Our collection of travel guides has been especially popular with our patrons. Whoever is planning trips, we hope you have a great holiday!
It has come to our attention that some of you were looking for very specific books, which we sadly do not stock.
But do not fret, we have heard you loud and clear, and are now working on an ordering service, so you don’t miss out on the books you want most.
We will keep you updated on this blog, and through our email list, so be sure to sign up for it!
We want to thank you for such a great first week, it has been a pleasure!
We can’t wait to see you in the shop soon!
