Please feel free to order online OR email the store at email@example.com
with detailed information about the books and we will order for you. We do not buy or sell used books.
Although we try our best, and most of the time we can do it, we can't guarantee a specific deadline for receiving books. This is the reality of every bookstore, we just don't want to mislead you. Some books are back-ordered or have to be reprinted, or have to be obtained from the UK. Deliveries don't happen on weekends, etc... Usually 13 days is the average maximum delivery time, but often the books come sooner. Orders are put in from Monday to Thursday every week.

BUY A SCHOOL A BOOK
BUY A BOOK FROM OUR STORE AND DONATE IT TO ANY SCHOOL YOU PICK IN THE PETERBOROUGH AREA THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR. WE WILL DELIVER FOR YOU.
Just come in or call or order online. Buy any book -- or order one --and we will take it to the school you suggest. We will also put a little nameplate in the book with your name so that the school knows who their gift has come from.
THE BOOK BOUQUET
Do you need an original and personal present for someone? Order a Book Bouquet. Three ($80) or Four ($100) beautifully wrapped and presented books, chosen personally by the staff at Hunter Street Books. We will include a brief note explaining why we picked each book. When you check out in the webstore let us know if you'd like a specific theme (Get Well, Happy Mother's Day, etc.) or a specific genre (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc.). Or let us surprise you! Order online or come in and buy a bouquet. Give us a day to get your order ready and then pick up and deliver to that special someone! Or, if you are sending to someone far away, we would be happy to send by Purolator (charges will apply)!
