We hold regular public open days which allow you to come and pick books direct from our showroom shelves.
We are normally open on the first Sunday of each month 10am-4pm and the last Friday of each month 3.30-8pm. These are public open days and you can just pop in during our opening times. Please note session times may vary due to school holidays so please do check our Showroom Diary here before visiting.
We also now have Under 5's shopping and storytime sessions. These are run over two sessions on alternate Wednesdays. To keep within Covid guidelines these sessions are restricted and you would need to book your space to attend. You can find out more about these sessions and book your space here
Finally, we welcome visits from teachers, childcare providers and group leaders through out the year by appointment- to book a time to pop in simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
For updates on our public open days why not join our newsletter. Each month we will send out an email with all our open days and times. You can sign up here
Building 7, Vantage Point Business Village, Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire, GL17 0DD
Once you come into Vantage Point go past the gate house (give security a wave!) then follow the road. Go around the bend, down a long stretch and then left at the end. You will come to a large car park and a tall building with a glass lift at the front will be on your right. This is the building you want! Come up the stairs or ramp into the foyer through the revolving doors. Once inside we are on the ground floor, through the double doors and last door on the right.
You can watch a video here of the route once onsite.
We accept cash, card and Apple Pay payments. Receipts can be provided at time of purchase.
We will also accept cheques from schools and official groups but sadly no longer accept cheques from individuals.
Our new showroom is on the ground floor and has full disability access.
There is a ramp for wheelchair/pushchair access but we also have a couple of disabled spaces at the rear of the building which leads straight into the showroom so if you need to park a little closer please get in touch and we will reserve a space for you.
Children of all ages are welcome to visit, after all we wouldn't have a business without them! But ask that parents please supervise children at all times. Forklifts maybe operating near the car park and there are other businesses within our building using pallet trucks and such like. Inside our warehouse its quite child friendly and we do have a small play area.
*Update July 2021*
Whilst mask are no longer compulsory all staff members will continue to wear them over the summer. We encourage all adults and teens visiting to continue wearing a mask when in our showroom but again this is not compulsory. Hand sanitiser is still available, all basket and trolley handles are still being disinfected between each use and our Track and Trace QR code is still on the door.
In order for everyone to shop safely we will be monitoring numbers of persons inside the showroom at any one time. Therefore if we are particularly busy you may be asked to wait a few minutes before entering. . we will do our best to keep everything moving as swiftly as possible
We kindly request that if at any time in the 48hrs before your visit you have a temperature or any symptoms of a cold, particularly Covid-19 to please reschedule your visit to help protect our staff and other attending families.
If you require a quieter visit please do get in touch by contacting Lynne at email@example.com who will happily work to meet your needs.
We had a great time this warehouse open day celebrating Science week. We had all our usual books available plus a large range of science and STEM books all still available at just £2.50 each. To get hands on with science we also had some fun activities running which everyone was welcome to join in with- these included making a paperclip float on water, making cress heads and even getting an egg inside a bottle! A big well done to Bugs 1 and 3 who not only planned the experiments but also did shows and got people involved. One of my favourite open days so far!
What an incredible day! The Gloucestershire Stormtroopers were fantastic so much fun was had by all, parents and children!
And it just so happened to be one of the Stormtroopers birthdays which couldn't go unmarked.. I mean where else would you go and get to buy bargain books and sing happy birthday to a Stormtrooper!!
