Holiday Shopping

Thursday, November 19, 2020

Hello everyone!

We have been getting ready for the holiday shopping season for many weeks, and today we would like to invite you to help us make this a safe and spirited holiday season for everyone.

We continue to be concerned about the current state of the pandemic in our community. We have also learned a lot over the last nine months about safe and responsible ways of conducting our daily lives and operating your community bookstore. Based on everything we have learned, here are the main changes we are making for you:

  1. Starting Friday, Nov 20, our new store hours will be: Monday-Saturday 9am-8pm and Sundays 10am-6pm. 
  2. We have increased our staff capacity for faster processing of online orders.
  3. We are happy to answer your questions or provide personalized book shopping remotely. You can email us at or call us during our phone answering hours, 10am-6pm, seven days a week.
  4. Our Plaza Pickup service will remain open for fast and easy pickup of prepaid orders.
  5. We prefer credit card payments, but we are also starting to accept cash payments.
  6. We are offering free domestic shipping for gift cards of any denomination and you can also purchase online gift codes from our website.
  7. As always, we are offering complimentary gift wrapping.


Here’s what we are requesting from you:HolCat table photo

  • Please consider shopping for holiday gifts earlier in the holiday season. In past years, the last two weeks before Christmas have been the busiest for Kepler’s. 
  • Please consider shopping during less busy hours. Our peak hours tend to be on Saturday and Sunday between 11am-4pm. 
  • Please continue to wear masks and maintain at least 6 feet of social distance from others at the bookstore.
  • Please don’t come to Kepler’s if you are feeling unwell or experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 or have any reason to believe you might have been exposed to this infection.
  • Please be patient and extra nice to everyone!

We are sorry that we will not be able to have the annual holiday party for our members this year as we have to be cautious about the number of customers we allow inside the bookstore at one time. Please remember to renew your membership online.

We will continue to be vigilant about the state of the pandemic and take additional actions to protect our staff and customers as necessary. We appreciate your ongoing support and look forward to speaking with you soon by phone, by email, online, or in the store.
