This means a couple things:
➡️ $1 Shipping to the USA Remains!
We can still fulfill many online orders through our warehouse partners. If a book says "Usually ships in 1-5 days" on our website, chances are it'll send. We'll let you know if it can't.
If a book says "call for price," we can't do it.
Smaller orders are more likely to be fulfilled. If you want 10 books, place 10 different orders, and we'll likely be able to do at least 7 or 8 of them.
This is because of technical warehouse stuff, but trust us.
➡️ We're suspending free in-Lawrence delivery. We loved this program, and you did too, and it'll be the first thing we reintroduce when it's safe
If you have a pending delivery order, we'll reach out to you soon to cancel it and let you know if $1 shipping will work in your case
➡️ Dashiell and Ngaio are going to be fostered by longtime Raven bookseller Sarah. We promise to keep up our usual stream of kitty photos. Sarah has her own kitten, so the kitty hijinks might be even more exciting than usual.
➡️ We don't know how long this will last (who knows anything anymore) but a big factor in our decision have our staff stop coming in was Governor Laura Kelly's stay-at-home order. The Raven booksellers will convene to evaluate our business model once that order is lifted.
➡️ Thank you so much for your support so far.
We appreciate your continued orders through http://ravenbookstore.com.
Online sales are going to be what helps us get through this. The Raven has been through hard times before and we have every intention of making it through these.
➡️ One more thing: stay home and stay safe.
Some people have asked if they can just swing by the store to pick up their book.
We stopped in-store pickup, and now in-store employees, for one reason only: staying home saves lives. It's time for us to do our part, and you should too.
