A note from us about the holidays...

Dear Valued Customers,
This Saturday, people everywhere are encouraging you to shop local and to shop small. In years past, Small Business Saturday has given us a nice bump into the holiday season. This year is different. Throughout the country, one bookstore per week has been forced to close since the beginning of the pandemic, and that trend is likely to continue.  While we are celebrating our fifth year in business this month, we still need strong holiday sales to see us through to 2021.  So, we're asking you to help. Here's how...
 * Keep buying books that are safely delivered or shipped to your doorstep from our store!
 * Buy gift cards. It helps us now, and lets you shop later.
 * Take advantage of special offers (e.g. Holiday/Surprise Bundles, subscriptions). Let us choose from the treasures on our shelves!
 * Attend events. We often employ other members of the community to host events like trivia and book clubs.
 * Shop other small businesses in Reston and Herndon, a strong Small Business Community benefits us all!
In return, we promise to help you discover and find great books, make personal recommendations, connect you with fellow readers and authors through events and book clubs, and continue to cultivate a love of reading throughout our community!                                                                                                                  

With gratitude,

The Scrawl Team
