Yes! If we don't have a particular book in stock we can usually source it from our suppliers within 24 hours. If it's a new release you can pre order it with us and we'll let you know the second it arrives! If you live within ten miles of the shop we'll even deliver it for you. Our book ordering service can be found here.
Our store is uncluttered and there is ample space for wheelchair access, our signage is clear and our vibe is relaxed. If there's anything our team can do to support any specific access needs just let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate.
