While Bookshop Santa Cruz is closing our doors to the public during this national health crisis, we are open to supply our local community with books and in-stock magazines, games, puzzles, toys, educational items, and gift items via phone order for curbside pick-up, or online ordering for curbside pick-up or delivery by USPS.
Seven days a week (Monday-Sunday) you can call 831-423-0900 between the hours of 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM to speak with one of our staff to order and pay via credit card for books and other items for curbside pick-up. Our booksellers are prepared to give book recommendations over the phone as well, though you can also browse a selection of our recommendations here. Any in-stock items will be ready for curbside pick-up immediately. Out of stock items our staff can order, and you will be called once they are available for pick-up (usually within 2-3 business days). When you know your order is ready, please drive up or walk to our entrance at 825 Front Street and give us a call. Our booksellers will then bring out your order to you.
You can also order for curbside pickup at www.bookshopsantacruz.com by selecting curbside pickup at checkout. Just wait for our call to confirm your order before heading down to pick up your items.
$0.99 Local Media Mail Book Shipping
Bookshop Santa Cruz is currently offering a flat Media Mail shipping rate of $0.99 for books shipped to addresses within Santa Cruz County. This offer is good for both orders placed on our website, and orders placed by phone (831-423-0900). An additional $0.65 charge may apply to any books that will be shipped directly from our warehouse to your address. To use this option, please select "$0.99 Local Media Mail" as your delivery option at check-out. $0.99 will cover all books in a single order. Due to the USPS Media Mail guidelines, this shipping rate can only apply to orders that only contain books. Media Mail is expected to be delivered from Bookshop Santa Cruz to a local address within 2-3 business days, but can take up to 10 days, dependent on USPS's prioritization.
Bookshop Santa Cruz also continues to also offer Priority Mail as a shipping option for all customers, as well as the regular Media Mail rate for non-local customers.
