Closing down sale and then saying 7 weeks delivery... Yeah, I would probably suggest not to bother. Seems there’s a very strong chance you won’t ever get your orders fulfilled, otherwise why give a 7 week delivery estimate?
Gutted love this company bought my children many many books from them over the last 16 years
Books on here for £8.09 (saving 90p) vs the same book at The Works for £3

I placed the order at the end of February, I've emailed them twice and they haven't responded and other people have tried to contact them via their FB page without any success.


This is so sad my family has ordered from them loads in the past and always been happy with what arrived. It's awful that they've gone so downhill

Was hoping for a decent sale of Ian M Banks. Sadly not. Still a good sale though.

Yes they're lacking in adult fiction sadly, but a few interesting non fiction titles!

It was 4 weeks, I would guess it’s been extended due to demand, and this virus
Beware of this company, I placed an order on the 18th february.... still waiting. starting to wonder if I will actually receive it....

That is nonsense everyone else can fulfil non essential items just fine. If it was toilet paper or food I could understand.
Anything of any merit is out of stock anyway.


If you use PayPal or a credit card, you should be able to get your money back if it goes wrong in any way.

If you use a debit card on your bank account, you may not.

Just something to bear in mind.

I agree with what JohnnyRoller said.

Yeah out of the sale they don't seem to have great book offers 😬
My kids are obsessed with uniforms, not unicorns or mermaids, Where's the uniform stuff lol :/ only kidding. Very sad another load of jobs lost but books will help many at this price I'm sure.
I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever get my order. Placed end of last month.

Same here.
Ordered from theses guys last month, someone posted a deal, still haven't received my order
They don't respond to any mail or form on there website and there phone seems to be busy all the time ?
So I have asked PayPal for money back .
I placed an order Feb 7th and it did take the 4 weeks to arrive. All items were there and in a good condition. I think they must have reduced staff as they were going in to administration well before this virus hit, then they have probably lost more staff due to illness. I did email to ask about my order though, and like others didn't get a reply.
Waited over a month, can't get hold of them so made a paypal claim, dont be suprised if you dont get anything from them, doesnt take a month to send a parcel out.
I wouldn't bother buying from them, I ordered before the announcement of them going into administration was made and they have not honoured that order and they are also not responding to emails or messages via their FB page.

Very much agree with you - a very sad day. Been shopping with them for 13 years! Such a shame. Hope everyone there can find good future employment.

Me too, phoned them up and they said would be dispatched last week- wasn’t phoned again Monday and said would be dispatched this week 🤞🏻 had a load of activity books in the order so could really do with them with the kids now off
I placed 4 orders of which I received 2. I’m still waiting on my 1st order placed on 20th feb. Everyday I check my emails to see if there’s a dispatch email from them but still waiting. Need the books more than ever for the kids! Really hope both orders come soon (fingers crossed)
So they're out of office due to the virus but can still send 'everything must go' emails' ...
I'm still waiting for an order delivery from six weeks ago. I won't be bothering.

Maybe marketing has been working from home and customer service hasn't?
Kinda seems wrong voting hot for a shop closing in the current climate, but great offers 😔
I ordered two weeks ago and it arrived a week later (along with a number of freebies I hadn't ordered), so it won't necessarily take the full 7 weeks
Be prepared for a long wait, i ordered on the 26th feb it said 10-14 days then it was showing 4 weeks on the website now saying 7

Same used to buy loads from them, when they used to come to our hospital at work. Loads of us have been ordering from there this past 15 years...and now this
When I spoke to them they said they didn’t really understand what was going on in the warehouse as some orders placed later than others were getting dispatched before- if I ordered anything again think I’d pay for next day delivery

Sad news , we still have books I bought more than ten years ago most have gone to charity shops as they got older but the special ones they loved I’ve kept . Hope to read them to grandchildren one day
We're still waiting for our order, been 4 weeks now, don't expect them to do anything in a hurry or at all!
I placed a large order on the 29th Feb & it’s still showing the order status as ‘processing’. I paid using PayPal, but just debating on how much longer to wait to see if they actually turn up (a lot are children’s books that would really come in handy now) before I request a refund. Can’t get any sort of answer from them unfortunately. It’s sad that they’re going, I’ve been using them for years;(

Same here really annoying
Seems to be only certain books are in the closing down sale which made me wonder if they were closing down or just calling it a "closing down sale" to rid of certain stock.
I'm still waiting for my order from early March looked on Twitter and it's now saying orders will take upto 7 weeks to deliver. I wish I'd paid with PayPal so I could get my money back.
