2015 New Year’s Message
Thank you all for a very good 2014 at Parry Sound Books. For all the talk of doom and gloom and the end of the book I do believe we still want to read real books – and this year seems to be a corner turned as we look forward to a strong resurgence in 2015.
27 years ago I said one day I’d be the old lady in the bookstore - well that day has come and gone. Now I say I will be the very old lady in the bookstore.
That may be said in fun, but the reality is old people need more rest than young people. So this year we are taking a break.
This winter in order to give myself and my staff some much needed time off we are closing the store on Mondays and Tuesdays through January and February.
We will be open from 9:00 – 5:30 Wednesday through Saturday during January and February and will return to full time hours in March.
Our stock will not be reduced – your special orders will be filled as usual and should take no more than a week to be to be received – often less. It will be business as usual – only with fewer hours.
We will spend our time skiing, visiting friends and family, travelling and taking time to relax, renew and replenish. We will go into the new year with the energy to serve our customers and contribute to our community as we have since December 1988.
So, enjoy your winter – get outside – get refreshed and reinvigorated, as we all prepare to meet the demands – and rewards – or the new year.
Best wishes for the New Year to you all, Charlotte Stein & staff
