Who we are

We are a family run business in the North East of Ireland. Our customers pre-pandemic would be familiar with our ‘bookclubs’ leaving samples in their places of work to browse at break times. But since then we have become an online store only with the same quality & value our customers came to expect.

Shipping and Delivery

All orders received will be dispatched from our County Louth warehouse on the same day or the next working day. We use An Post business post for delivery to anywhere in the Republic of Ireland or Royal Mail for deliveries in the North or the UK

Free Local Deliver

  • We offer free local delivery on orders OVER €20
  • Free local delivery service available within a 15km radius of our Shop in Dundalk.
  • At the Billing Details stage of your order (name, address etc.) enter a note at the bottom of the page that you would like it delivered for free.
  • At the Checkout select Local Pickup, and we’ll deliver free of charge.

By An Post/Courier

  • We use An Post to deliver to addresses beyond the local area.
  • Post and packaging is a flat fee of €5 per order up to an order value of €70  
  • All orders over €70 are free of any post and packing charges
  • An Post will provide a tracking number for your delivery once they receive it.
  • Delivery normally takes 1 to 3 working days to all of Ireland and 2 to 5 working days to the UK (from leaving our warehouse). 

Our goal is for every customer to be totally satisfied with the goods they receive and the service we offer and if there is a problem we will do everything we can to sort it out.
