The cold temperatures and the snowy streets of Worcester, Massachusetts make it difficult and unpleasant to leave one’s house. Here at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester, we’ve got a solution…. let us mail your purchases to you!
The short version:
E-MAIL ADDRESS: orders [at] anniesbooksworcester [dot] com.
WHAT DO WE SELL: New and used books, DOCTOR WHO toys, magazines and merchandise, crafts by local artisans, greeting cards, audiobooks, and more
PAYMENT TYPES ACCEPTED: Check, money order, credit card, or PayPal
We ship anywhere in the United States. Shipping via USPS Media Mail is a flat $3.50 whether it’s one book or ten books [cheaper than Amazon!!!], and purchases over $75.00 receive FREE shipping. Shipping via USPS Priority Mail will depend upon weight and size of order.
We will happily send your in-stock items and your special orders using the same shipping terms… no hidden fees.
The long version:
If you have special shipping instructions, this is the best time to tell us about them as well. And, tell us if you want to pay by credit card, check or money order. Giving us your want list either by e-mail, mail or phone is where we start the process.
This is important also so you don’t try to purchase something we DON’T have in stock without knowing the facts…the most common complaint we hear about some services is customers pay for items they can never receive. While most titles on our shelves have more than single copies in stock, we’ve had days where a sudden flood of orders can make something unavailable quickly, so it’s best when needed to tell you that’s happened.
There are issues of security once we have data that go beyond what companies often tell their customers, and which cause major privacy violations after the sale. Also, a shopping cart program may make it harder to show you increased discounts for larger orders.
We intend to revisit this seriously once we’ve organized and inventoried our backlist book titles, and will be working with systems such as Edelweiss to integrate orders for frontlist and upcoming titles.
Thank you for allowing us to serve you as your friendly neighborhood bookstore, both locally and nationally.
