Last week Good Neighbours Hout Bay opened! It was all hands on deck down in Cape Town as they worked furiously to get all the books shelved and all the systems set up ready for business on Monday, 7th March. The shop is situated on the corner of Main and Victoria Roads, Hout Bay (the site of the old Bonzai Nursery). The entrance is in Victoria Road.
The official opening will take place on Tuesday, 15th March. Tony Curto, from Greenville Presbyterian Seminary, will give the opening pastoral address entitled “Reading for Life” at 7pm. This will be preceded by refreshments and a time of fellowship. All are welcome, but for catering purposes please RSVP to Rodger on 072 203 3236 or Pam on email@example.com .The shop will be open all day from 10 am for sales.
Although the shop bears our name, Goood Neighbours Hout Bay will operate independently from Good Neighbours in Randburg. We will be the source of all their books, but we will not be involved in their daily operations.
This independent operation has a few implications:
1. Good Neighbours Randburg and Augustine do not have a record of their stock. Any enquiries about availability and prices at GN Hout Bay are to be made directly with Pam on firstname.lastname@example.org (phone not yet installed; will let you know as soon as we have a number).
2. If you want to obtain books from GN Randburg, but collect at GN Hout Bay, you will have to place your order with Pam. She will then add this to her weekly/fortnightly order that she will place with us. Orders placed by customers may incur a waiting period – because our mark-ups are so low, we cannot courier books independently according to demand. Pam will have to build up an order, so that courier costs are spread across a number of books. Of course, if you need books quickly, you are welcome to order directly from GN Randburg as usual and we will post directly to you.
3. Orders placed on the Good Neighbours or Augustine web sites come to us at GN Randburg. Postage fees are incurred for parcels sent to Cape Town. Collection at GN Hout Bay is not an option for web orders.
We take this opportunity to once again thank you all for your support and encouragement.
Yours in the Lord’s service
