BACK TO BROWSING!
Starting Monday, June 8th, we will be opening our doors once again so you can come in and peruse the shelves. There are, however, some hard limits that we are imposing due to the pandemic and social distancing guidelines:
- We will be open for browsing from 10am to 2pm.
- ONLY FIVE (5) CUSTOMERS will be allowed in at a time.
- Masks are required and you will be asked to sanitize your hands before entering.
- Sanitizer will be placed throughout the store for customer use and frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned regularly.
- Browsing time is limited to approximately 20-30 minutes.
- We will not be accepting cash at this time.
- We are NOT accepting used books for trade right now.
- Curbisde pick-up is ongoing, from 10am-2pm.
- Delivery is still available: Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday between 5 and 9pm. Due to our staffing and the hours that people are available deliveries are limited to the city of Fort Collins within these boundaries: Trilby to the south, I-25 to the east, Overland/Red Fox to the west (exceptions made for Ponds, Westgate, & Burns Ranch developments), and Richard’s Lake/Willox to the north. Orders must be pre-paid either through the website or over the phone. See the map below of our delivery area.
A note to our customers who live in apartments: If you live in a secure building with interior access to individual apartment units you will be asked to meet our driver at the exterior door of the building. Our driver will text you (or call) when they arrive. If you are not home, cannot accept delivery at that time, or cannot be reached your delivery will be left inside the exterior door at a common area if your building has one or will be returned to the store to try again the next delivery day. We appreciate your understanding and assistance in keeping contact points as low as possible for our driver and the store in general.

We are currently operating with one phone line.
We have recently switched phone service providers and are currently operating with only one phone line. If you are unable to get through, we are on a call with another customer. Do not leave a voicemail. Either call back or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On 7/16/2020 Governor Jared Polis issued a statewide mask order, directing Coloradans to wear a face covering while indoors. Old Firehouse Books employees and customers are expected to follow this order.
