Bookmark Reservations

We have missed you in the store!

For your safety and ours, we are pleased to welcome you back by reservation only. Please use our online booking system to make reservations for in-store shopping and book, media, and puzzle donations.

In-Store

Shopping

How it Works

  • Each 45-minute reservation may be used for one or two adults, plus children under 18. Please plan to arrive and depart on time so that we may prepare the store for other shoppers.

  • Reservations require a $10 deposit. The deposit can be made via PayPal (no PayPal account required) when you reserve. The deposit will function like a gift certificate that can be used either during your initial or a subsequent visit.

  • The deposit may be forfeited for no-shows

Safety First!

Safety requirements for in-store shopping:

  • Please use hand sanitizer before entering the store

  • Wear an approved face covering correctly at all times during your visit

  • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and Bookmark staff
