Cobble Hill December = Bring no books

December is here!  After Months of being surrounded by towers of boxes, it is finally that time of year when our Cobble Hill store puts a hold on incoming books.  As we do every year in December, we put a sign on the door and say no to incoming batches of books.  We focus our energy on getting all of those boxes emptied out and put onto the shelves so there is tonnes of fresh inventory to select.  There's an impending holiday season upon us and we have to get those books out on the shelf.  Thank you for your cooperation during our catch up time.
 

Cobble Hill limits incoming books

Hi everyone.  We've been trying to keep up with the books coming in since mid june, but it's been a losing battle.  We have to put a stop to the large estates and downsizing drop-offs for the time being.  We just don't have the space.  We will try to implement a ONE box/bag limit on incoming books.  Please do not find a garbage bag or the biggest box you have and fill it up; we don't want to cause back injuries.  Small to medium size boxes and bags only.  Thank you for your help.

Now Accepting Books

I had put a stoppage on incoming books in May because we were completely full.  At that time I had been telling people that we had to clear out the frnt from boxes and then we would accept books again.  It appears we have cleared out the front, so I have removed the signs saying "no books". 
 
That means we are welcoming books into the store again.  Thank you for your patience while we sorted out the logjam.

Cobble Hill not accepting Books until Jul 2

If youhave been to our Cobble Hill location you will have noticed that there are a lot of boxes everywhere.  We've taken in more books in the last four months than we can handle.  It's the first thing everyone says when they come in the store.  Most common is "Do you have enough books", followed closely by "Do you still have to go through ALL THESE BOXES?"  
 

Snow Day!!

Considering that Tess and I cannot get up the hill from our home to the main road, it appears we are going to have a snow day.  Both locations are closed this morning.  I have some chains I am gong to put on my tires and hopefully that will get me to Cobble Hill at the very least.  Good luck out there.  We will open the stores as soon as we can get to their location.

Both Stores Closing Early Today

Due to the forecasts of a terrible storm coming our way, we have decided to close both Bucknucks locations early today (Saturday).  Bucknucks in Qualicum Beach and also in Cobble Hill (in Cowichan) will be closing today at 3:00 pm. 
 
Thank you to everyone who has been coming despite the weather.  I hope you all enjoy some storm watching in the warm and dry curled up with a good book.  Good luck to all o you who have to be out in this weather, and thank you to the crews that will be out getting our power and roads ixed up in the aftermath.
