Letter to Customers re COVID-19



Dear Customers,

On Monday, June 1 we will, after undertaking significant and important safety precautions, open our doors and invite you to return to Barrett. We have installed plexiglass screens around the counter where our staff work and placed hand-sanitizing stations at the entrance and around the store. We will be following guidelines that are familiar to most of you by now to create as safe a space as possible. Masks will be required for staff and customers, and we request that you use the hand sanitizer before browsing books. We also appreciate payment by credit card or other contactless methods of payment. 

You'll notice that the store layout has changed a bit; we've shifted shelves and rearranged departments to make more space, so do ask the staff for direction. We request that when you are inside to please remember social distancing and be respectful of those around you. If it becomes necessary, we will limit the number of customers in the store at one time to comply with the recommended directives from the State.

Please note that we will continue with curbside pick-up at our back door and home delivery in Darien and Rowayton. If you prefer to receive your books via one of these two no-contact methods, please give us a ring, 203.655.2712, or place your order via our website. For the time being our hours will remain the same: Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

We look forward welcoming you back into the store and are so grateful for your continued support.

Stay well,

Sheila Daley
