Publishers, wholesalers, and retail experts all expect the supply chain issues to be worse this year than in 2020. You know the reasons — social distancing, COVID outbreaks, reduced capacity at printers, labor and truck driver shortages, congested ports, and extreme weather — but what does this all mean for you-Order Early.

We want to make your holiday season perfect and with supply chain issues, we face the challenge of ensuring you get your books before Christmas. By pre-ordering, you know your present will be in time for the holiday. 

Macdonald Book Shop Staff are working to add new ways for you to shop, including personalized shopping hours, where you can enter the store without crowds. Find the details below about the personal shopper experience.

Email Newsletter

We would like to announce our launch of an email newsletter. Starting this month, we will have three newsletters: new releases, book club suggestions, and kid picks. 

Simply email us and let us know you would like to take part, and which newsletter you would like to receive. We will compile a list and send out an email with the correct content, once per month.

We will never give your email out to anyone else, without your express permission. If you wish to opt-in for special mailings such as ABA and Mountains and Plains newsletters around the holidays, just let us know and we will share your email for those specific purposes.

You can also be the first to receive the Christmas Catalog that will be put in the newspaper closer to Thanksgiving, as we can email you the catalog when it is published.
