This year we have a new opportunity for our community to shop before opening (bookstore) and after closing (toystore)! It's the very best way to make this holiday season safe, easy + enjoyable. 

We will work with you to curate the perfect gifts for your friends + family while shopping without the crowds during your 30 minute time slot.

How it works:
  1. Sign up for a time slot on the signup genius form HERE for bookstore and HERE for Avid & Co.
  2. To confirm appointment purchase a $50 (for the bookstore) or $100 (for Avid & Co.)
  3. There's no obligation to use the whole gift card during your time slot.
  4. Show up with your list in your hand and your mask on your face
Our team is looking forward to helping you shop as locally and safe as possible this winter season!
