A new statement from Bookends of Fowey – 30th March 2020
Sadly, and with immediate effect, we are no longer able to process any book orders for new books that we do not hold in stock, but which we had been sending out to you via Gardners, our new book wholesaler. This is because Gardners have decided to close, in order to protect their staff, a difficult decision, but one that we respect and support because the only important thing is to keep people safe and well.
However, you can still buy the books that we have at Bookends. A list of both the new and second-hand stock that we hold can be found by going to the Bookends of Fowey website www.bookendsoffowey.com and clicking on the link to ‘search our stock’. You can then order via AbeBooks, or you can telephone or e-mail us. Most children's books are not listed, so do contact us and ask if there is a book you want, that is not on our listing.
We will continue to reduce our postage costs to £2.00 for 1st class post and £1.50 for 2nd class post for standard-sized books.
You can also still buy stationery, greetings cards and art materials from us, which we will deliver to our customers in Fowey or mail out to people further afield.
Please try to use independent shops within Fowey and further afield. It is too easy to click on the Amazon button, but small independents will appreciate every purchase that you make with them during this difficult time. Please do your bit to help independent retailers on the high street by using their online presence.
Thank you for your invaluable and continuing support for us, for other local businesses in the community and other bookshops around the country, who are now finding things very difficult indeed.
We firmly believe that books will bring great comfort during this difficult time.
We will mainly be working from home, so contact us in one of the following ways:

Keep safe, keep well, keep reading.
