How Copperfish Books is Working During the Coronavirus Pandemic
As we move toward fully re-opening Copperfish Books, our next step will be taking appointments for shopping. This will allow us to limit the number of shoppers in the store and keep us all safe.
If you prefer not to shop in-person, we offer contactless pickup, free local delivery, and of course, shipping services. You can still call us for recommendations, to find out what’s new, and to place an order. We’ve missed you and look forward to welcoming you back to a safe environment for you and for us!
Our working hours are Monday – Saturday 10 am - 4 pm.
You and up to 3 of your guests will have the store to yourself for up to 30 minutes, including checkout. Face masks and social distancing are required. We will have hand sanitizer for you to use while you shop. Between visits, Copperfish staff will sanitize to prepare for the next appointment. Learn more >>>
Pick up your purchase in a safe manner – for you and for us.
Here's how contactless pickup works:
- Place your order by phone or shop our online store. Advance payment by credit card is required so that the transaction is completely contactless.
- Let us know when you will pick up your order. Our pickup hours are Monday-Saturday 10 am - 4 pm.
- Come to our rear entrance. The outer door will be unlocked. Your bag will be on the table in our lobby, which we can view through our locked glass door.
- Give us a wave. We miss seeing you!
Free Local Delivery
We can deliver your order to your home within 5 miles of Copperfish Books. But, if you are farther out, please contact us to see if we may be able to get to you. We might be going your way!
Simply set a budget, give us your information, and tell us some of your reading likes and dislikes. Works great as a surprise gift for homebound loved ones, too! We'll do our best to select books that we really think you or your loved ones will enjoy. Read more here >>>
Book Recommendations for Your Loved Ones
Do you live outside of our area and have loved ones who need books? We can help! Tell us what they like to read and how much you'd like to spend -- we'll do the choosing for you! And if they aren't leaving the house, we'll deliver (see details above).
