How do I place an order?
On the home page, you can browse lists of titles that are in stock or search for any other title using the search bar at the top of the screen. You can add a book to your cart by clicking the "Order" button beside any title. Our online store is a completely secure web store that is hosted by Bookmanager, the same people who run our in-store system. Remember that “special order” titles will take extra time to arrive, but we can still bring them in for you! Physical gift cards will be mailed out each week.
Do I need to set up a new account when I place an order if I already set one up in store?
Yes, you will need to set up a new account for your first order. Once you place your first order, we’ll merge this account with your existing one to ensure you maintain all of your points and continue to accrue them.
Where is the “free delivery” option at checkout?
Sadly there isn’t one! Just select “Local Delivery” and we’ll be able to tell from your address whether you qualify for free shipping. Please note: your receipt will say that shipping charges will be applied later; ignore that part. Unless you’re requesting shipping outside of Edmonton, St. Albert, or Sherwood Park, there will be no shipping charges added.
How does Edmonton's Single Use Item Reduction bylaw (20117) affect free delivery?
Starting July 1 2023, Edmonton bylaw's state that businesses must charge for paper shopping bags. We deliver our books and merch items in paper bags, which will result in a 0.25 cent charge added to all our deliveries starting July 1st.
How do I pay?
You will be prompted to input your credit card information at check-out, which we will then use to process the payment. Please note that we cannot accept Visa debit cards.
Can I use a gift card?
Yes. Include your gift card number in the Gift Card box when you checkout, and the amount will be taken off your total.
Can I redeem points?
If you have enough points to make a redemption and would like to do so, please leave a note in the instructions section during checkout. We’ll make sure to redeem your points and will update you on the new amount being charged to your credit card.
Can I add something to an order I’ve already placed?
If you go ahead and place a second order for that other item or two you found, we can combine them ourselves for you.
Where and when do you deliver?
We deliver across Edmonton, Sherwood Park, and St. Albert on Wednesdays. We will contact you before delivery to ask for any specific delivery instructions. We also ship across Canada.
