May 2020, Direct-to-Home Ordering with Florey's Books.

Hello everyone, I would like to thank you all for the overwhelming support you have given me and Florey's Books during the current shelter-in-place situation we are all in. I really can't say enough how much it has meant to me to have so many generous people order from the store, or even just call or email to see how everything is going. My sincerest gratitude and heartfelt appreciation to you all.

Most people have been satisfied with the direct-to-home book ordering that my primary supplier Ingram Book Distribution has helped us out with. The delivery times *are* frequently longer than any of us would like. This is largely due to Ingram being swamped with the direct-to-home orders, while simultaneously working with greatly reduced staff at their warehouse. In addition they are wiping things down periodically and keeping everyone socially-distanced. I apologize for any delay in the arrival of your books in advance. Delivery times have ranged from just a couple days to about 10 days.

Our direct-to-home book ordering program will continue for the month of May at the very least. Since the store is closed to in-person shopping, and it is honestly a bit depressing to sit in an empty store all day, I am not at the store our full usual hours every day. Currently, I am coming in every day to answer emails, phone messages, water the plants, etc. That said, I come in at 10am and stay until usually 4pm. So please bear with me if I am not here in the later afternoon. Please feel free to leave a message or call the following day.

Here are the details for ordering direct-to-home:

First, I ask that you DO NOT include any payment info in your email or phone messages in the interest of data security.
Also, there is a small shipping charge, depending on order size, it is usually between $3 and $7, depending on weight.

1. Contact us with the title you are interested in via phone or email. Please remember to include your phone number!

2. I will get back to you with availability, and to work out payment and shipping address.

3. The order will be placed, and will ship directly from my supplier to your house.

Thank you again to every one who has reached out, called, emailed, or ordered from us. It has meant a lot to me.
Stay home, stay safe, and stay well!
