Post-storm update

I am happy to report that the inventory system is working again, and we are able to process transactions normally. Also, several power outages in the vicinity have been fixed, so the traffic light at Lake & Chicago is working again.

Last night's storm

Power was out briefly at the store. The power is back on, we're open, but the inventory system server is currently down. So checkout is a more pen and paper process than usual, and things will go faster if you pay by cash or check.

National Independent Bookstore Day

Saturday, May 2, 10am-6pm

Stop by Uncle Hugo's and Uncle Edgar's this Saturday, spend $50 or more, and get a free Uncles bookbag.

We're hoping to be busier than usual, so this Saturday would NOT be a good day to bring in large batches of used books.
