Dear Community Friends – It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to close the Galaxy Bookshop to browsers as of 6:00 pm today. We really hate to do it but we feel it is the right thing to do.
We are planning to still be here every weekday between 11:00 and 3:00 to take orders, pack up books to send out and do everything we can to keep you all in books for the time ahead – but we will not allow the public into the store.

We are happy to take orders over the phone at 802-472-5533 (leave a message if you call outside of our new hours!),via email at, through Facebook Messenger or on our website.

We are sending orders out in the mail for free, working with some community partners to offer store to door delivery for local folks and will still be able to offer curbside delivery during our reduced weekday hours.

We are also working hard to get Indiecommerce up and running on our website  *Now available!

We will be working with a local film student (whose college is closed) to make and post regular videos to keep you informed about new releases still arriving at the bookshop and new titles that we are particularly excited about. You can also call us and we will be your personal shoppers! We will read descriptions and help make choices – how fancy!

We thank you very much for your continued support during this tricky time and we look forward to seeing you all again face to face in good health and soon.

Best, Andrea and Sandy
