Changes, they are a-comin’!
Due to, er, our financial situation, we’re making a few changes. NO, WE ARE NOT CLOSING!
However, starting Monday (I think!), Dennis will be going back to work. You know – a real one job, with a paycheck and all that. Whew! So, that means that yours truly will be running the bookstore. Oh, sure, he’ll be in and out, but mostly it’ll be me up at the store.
Seriously, how often do you get a real, live author behind the counter at a bookstore? Oh. I guess you could run down to Parnassus, but whatshername already gets a lot of press for being a bookstore owner/author. Probably too busy touring or whatnot to be in the store very often. Anyway, *I* don’t have that problem (darn the luck!), so I’ll be up at AOTSP every day.
Besides that particular change, our hours will adjust. Don’t panic! We’re only going back to our fall/winter hours, year round. So we’ll be open from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
There MIGHT be a gap in open hours come mid-afternoon, though. Someone will need to pick up the kid from school around 3:00 p.m. But it all depends on scheduling. If it happens, the door might be locked between 2:30 and 3:30. Unless I can get a volunteer to drive carpool or man the register? Anyone? Bueller?
We’ll still do all your special ordering and we’ll still sell online. And of course, we’ll definitely have all our local authors and all our events. NONE of those things will change!
The place might look a little different, though. I’m going to be officing (Heh. New word!) in the back of the store and so will have to rearrange a bit. Oh, and once school starts, every day may turn into “take your puppy to work day.”
So, there it is. Changes. We love ‘em!
