Both Locations are closed on November 11th in honour of Remembrance Day.
Both Bucknucks Locations are open today (BC Day). We are open Sunday Hours at our location in Cobble Hill as well as Qualicum Beach.
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.
Happy Monday Everyone. Today (Monday - Victoria Day), Our Cobble Hill Location is open, but our Qualicum Beach location is closed. I hope everyone is enjoying this lovely weather. It's about time we saw some spring.
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?"
Summer is our busiest time of the year. As a retail store we benefit greatly from the fact that Vancouver Island is so beautiful that it is a tourist destination. We need some help to handle the extra workload. If you like our store and read my website, then you are my kind of person. So much so, in fact, that this is the only method of advertising I am doing. It narrows the playing field somewhat. I've had many people who have approached me who would LOVE to work here, and some offer to do it for free.
Due to unforeseen circumstances the Cobble Hill store will be closed today (Monday, Jan 30) at 4PM. We apologize for any inconveneience.
Every year, we stop accepting books around this time. Bucknucks has never accepted book in December since we have to get stock out on the shelves for the Holiday season. We schedule a break from receiving inventory. The stoppage allows us to focus on getting books out on the shelf, and to make the store more tidy and presentable.
Cowichan location (south of Duncan) is accepting books once again. we will accept for the month of November, but we will still have our regularly scheduled stoppage in December. Thanks for your patience the last two weeks while we cleared space.
I held off as long as i could, but as of today Bucknucks in Cobble Hill is not accepting any more books until we clear the backlog. If it takes until the new year then so be it. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Rest assured that there will be over 200 new books on the shelves in Cowichan every day as we clear out all the boxes we have accumulated.
