Store Update

Starting Friday, June 5th, Delaware County will be entering the governor’s yellow phase of re-opening for Pennsylvania. We have been working hard to define what that means for Main Point Books.

Under the Yellow Phase, curbside pick-up is still preferred and we will continue to offer several options for no-contact book buying. You can order through our website, by email or phone. Your orders will be bagged and ready for curbside pick-up and we will let you know when they are ready to retrieve. Wrapping and gift notes will be available by request. We will also be able to ship orders directly to your house through www.mainpointbooks.com.

In addition, we will be offering limited, appointment-only browsing M-Sat: 10-4 pm, and Thursday nights until 6pm. Appointments will be for one person or immediate family at a time. Appointments will be spaced to allow for time to sanitize high touch surfaces between customers. Please make an appointment here. Customers must have an appointment to enter the store.

Events and programs will continue to be on-line for the foreseeable future. While we miss seeing you in person, this is a good way to keep our book conversation going and has been an enjoyable experience for our participants. Let us know if you would like to be included in any of our virtual conversations.

Thank you, as always for your support! Your kind words, phone calls and orders have made us feel like the extra effort to keep going is completely worth it. We know that your on-line orders are a vote of confidence and have allowed us to continue paying our rent. We look forward to returning to a time when you can casually browse our shelves in person with confidence.

Our COVID 19 Policies:

  • Everyone who comes into the store will be required to wear a mask and maintain proper social distancing.
  • All shoppers will need to use hand sanitizer upon entering the store.
  • Restrooms will be closed to the public until further notice.

  • All employees will wear masks.
  • No one will come to work if they have any symptoms.
  • All employees will frequently wash their hands.
