Not Yet Ready to Open For Browsing but Online Ordering is easy

A Note About Re-Opening the Store

At this time, we are not ready to open the store for customer browsing and shopping (which can still happen online). There are many alterations and preparations that must take place to keep our staff and customers safe. When we’re ready, we will still be doing online orders, curbside pickups and deliveries so it’s a complicated new business reality. When we’re ready, we’ll post it on our website along with all of the terms and conditions required to keep everyone safe and well-protected during this crisis. Watch for announcements on our website early in June.

Our thanks go out to the many long-time patrons and to all of our new customers for your wonderful support during these past 2 months. You certainly have kept us busy and we are most grateful for your ongoing support.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

Perfect Books – Strong and Able!

You have supported us so very forcefully over this past year and a bit, helping us surmount construction woes and now this terrible virus. We appreciate your concern but I want to iterate that Perfect Books is in great shape and we will withstand these temporary obstacles and bounce back as healthy as ever when this clouds passes. We’re going to be here to serve this community for many, many years to come.
