WARM GREETINGS FROM THE BOOKSHOP
We have temporarily closed our Online Bookstore until we can catch up with recent orders. We anticipate it reopening for sales in a few weeks. The bookshop in Paris is open every day. Please do check our opening hours on the homepage, as they can change from week to week, as needed.
We are deeply grateful to everyone who has supported Shakespeare and Company—Thank you! Normally, we get an average of ten orders a day on the website; that number jumped to six hundred orders a day before we had to “push pause" in early November. We're touched by the outpouring of support, and are now working to fulfil shipping orders as quickly as possible.
BELOW ARE ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS . . .
Orders Awaiting Fulfilment
If you've made an online purchase but haven't yet received your package, please be assured that we are working as quickly as possible to fulfil your order. We ask for your kind patience, keeping in mind that our work is complicated by health restrictions and distancing rules, which make it impossible for us to have everyone on staff in the shop at the same time. We will email you as soon as your order is ready to ship.
Ordering from the Online Store
The Online Bookstore is temporarily closed and not accepting new orders while we work to catch up with those purchases we've received in November. We expect the Online Bookstore to be live again in a few weeks.
Customers in Paris
The bookshop is open every day. Please check our hours on the homepage (they can occasionally change from week to week, as needed). If you are in Paris and would like to see whether a book is currently in stock or to ask about ordering a copy, please email us at [email protected].
Donations & Other Support for Shakespeare and Company
For those who've been asking about other ways to support the bookshop, including donations, we've just launched a project to support the bookshop over the coming year. Friends of Shakespeare and Company 2021 is an annual membership that includes made-for-members-only author talks, new writing, and audio readings of poems and short stories. You can find out more at Friends of Shakespeare and Company.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING!
