The Book House family of stores would like to officially announce our new website, online store, and the reinstatement of our e-newsletters! We’re sorry it’s been so long since you’ve heard from us, some of you have even called to make sure we’re okay, but rest assured that from now on you’ll be the first to get the skinny on new events and happenings at your favorite independent book stores.
Let’s start with the new site, and as some of you have already found, our new e-commerce site. We’ve partnered with the American Bookseller’s Association to offer some great new services to our customers including:
- e-book downloads (please see our expanded help section for e-book FAQs)
- expanded book search functionality covering multiple formats
- online ordering for in-store pickup, direct to home shipment and direct download
- expanded event listings and calendars covering all three stores
- holiday catalogs and promotional listings
- IndieBound Bestseller lists
- links to our book seller blogs and pages
Our site is up and running 24 hours a day for your convenience. There are detailed instructions for online ordering, e-book downloading, as well as store policies, hours and directions. So please stop by the new site at www.bhny.com (you will be redirected to bookhouse.indiebound.com) and have a look around. If by some chance you have our old site bookmarked please take a moment to update to our new site, you won’t regret it!
Now we’ve already said that our newsletters will be making a comeback, but let’s want to go over what that means for everyone subscribed (that’s you by the way). We don’t believe in bombarding our customers with useless email, so we try to limit our general newsletter to twice a month. Enclosed you’ll find general information and links to major store events and goings on. If you want to get more detailed information and be alerted to events at specific stores you can sign up for one of our three events lists, which are separated by store. You can choose to receive one, two, or all three of these once a month. Occasionally there may be an event so important that we feel it deserves it’s own newsletter, and in that case we’ll be sure you receive it as well. To subscribe to a list, please click the link at the bottom of this email and select the newsletters you wish to receive.
Well that should cover just about everything for now. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on our new site, and of course seeing you in the stores. If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to send us an email at email@example.com or call one of our stores directly.
Happy Spring and Enjoyable Reading,
The Staff of The Book House, Market Block Books, and Little Book House
