After almost 3 months shut due to Covid, Hemingway’s is re-opening! As of Saturday, May 30, 2020 we will once again be open to browse. A few things are changing though, so please note the following:

  • We will only be open 5 days a week. New store hours are 10:30 to 6:00, Tuesday to Saturday.

  • We’ve made some changes in store to ensure employee safety and promote social distancing, so certain sections have been moved and others are not available to browse at this time.

  • If you are bringing items in to trade or sell: please limit yourself to two bags or two small boxes, unless you call ahead to arrange a larger amount.  They will be tagged with your name and left to sit for at least two days. You will be contacted once they have been sorted.

  • Our complete book catalogue and many of our records are still browseable online: if you’d like to limit your time in-store, feel free to submit orders online, and we can have your items set aside ready to pick up.

Please obey the posted signage, don’t come into the store if you feel at all unwell, and respect social distancing guidelines!
