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.
I had hoped that we could keep bringing books in indefinitely, but sadly we must do something to stem the tide of incoming books. Over the last two weeks we have averaged between 20 and 30 boxes of books coming in a day. Compare that with two or three boxes worth going out, and you can see where we are having space problems.
