We are starting to get down to the wire for our holiday shopping. Here is some more information about our online inventory statuses and important dates if you’re shopping for Christmas. So if the inventory says:
On Our Shelves Now and there are More Than 10 Copies
You can place these orders up until noon (EST) on December 24th for store pick-up or noon (EST) on Sunday, December 20th if you want the books shipped to arrive in time for Christmas. Our online inventory uploads once a day and our actual inventory is changing constantly, especially this time of the year. If there are more than 10 copies listed, you can be pretty confident in our ability to fulfill your order; however, if you want to be 100% sure, you can always call us at 617-491-2220.
On Our Shelves Now and there are Fewer than 10 Copies
Everything moves much faster this time of year and it is not unusual to go through 10 (or even more) copies of a book in between uploads. Feel free to give us a call at 617-491-2220. If we’ve got the book, the above applies and if not, we’ll be able to give you more information.
Available at Warehouse
This means the book is not in the store, but that we can probably order it. These orders take 1-5 business days to arrive at the store. If you will be picking the order up at the store you can place the order through Sunday, December 20th. If you want the order shipped, and you’re paying with a credit card, you must place the order by 5PM (that good old fashioned EST) on Thursday, December 17th. If you want the order shipped and you want to pay with PayPal or a gift card, please call the store at 617-491-2220. We might be able to make this work, but it depends on which warehouse the book is in.
This means the book is not on our shelves or at the warehouses connected to our online inventory. There is a chance we can still get them in time for the holidays following the deadlines above, but the only way to know for sure is to call us at 617-491-2220.
