If I find a book on your site, does that mean it's currently in stock at your store?
Not necessarily. Books listed as "On Our Shelves Now" are most likely to be available in the store. Keep in mind that our inventory syncs with the website about every 6 hours. Books listed as "In Stock at Warehouse" will take between 2 and 10 business days to arrive in the store for pick-up or shipment. If your order is time sensitive, please call us at 401-236-8678 to confirm availability.

I received a confirmation e-mail. Does this mean that my order is ready to be picked up or has been shipped?
No. This just means that we've received your order, you will be contacted by us when your order has shipped or is ready to be picked up.

When will I get my book(s)?
For in-stock orders, we strive to ship them within 1 business day and delivery time depends on the method of shipping selected. Unless specified otherwise during checkout, we ship all books using USPS Media Mail. For orders with out-of-stock items, we will provide an estimated date of shipment.

What if I need to return something?
Please review our return policies and contact us with any further questions.
