Dear family, friends and loyal customers,
With the current situation, we felt it was necessary to give you an update on what is going on at Harry Hartog.
We are still very much open for business at all our shops and would like to assure you that the wellbeing and health of our customers and staff is always an absolute priority.
All of our employees have been trained to maintain the highest possible hygiene standards, and we are washing our hands and cleaning our public spaces. In addition we have decided to suspend all our major Author Events for the foreseeable future, and we will be watching closely how this situation unfolds in the next few days and weeks.
So for now, just know that our shops are open as usual, ready to nourish and entertain you. We strongly believe in the power of books to guide us during testing times. For those who cannot pop in, we are making some exciting changes so you can access us more easily from the comfort of your home.
Let one of our team of specialist booksellers curate a unique reading list just for you and your family, simply by filling in a short form, or picking up the phone to call us. We've also introduced a ‘Live Chat’ service on our website. Your books and other goodies can be picked up in store, or by uitlising our new Home Delivery service, or one of many delivery service apps like GoFetch (think Uber Eats but for everything else).
Please take care and here’s a warm and welcoming elbow bump from both of us and the team at Harry Hartog.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Robert and David Berkelouw
