Duck's Cottage reopens Saturday, May 16! We will be open 7am to 6pm seven days a week. Our staff will be wearing masks at all times and we ask our customers to do the same. Our shop is small so we are limited to no more than 6 customers at a time. Please maintain social distancing practices inside the shop and look for our directional arrows. Our utmost concern is the health and safety of our staff and customers and we will do everything we can to adhere to the safest protocol. Downtown Books is reopening on Wednesday, May 20, in our new location at 103 Sir Walter Raleigh Street in Downtown Manteo. We continue to ship both books and coffee from this website and thank everyone for their support and loyalty to our small businesses during this time!
Please note: around the country, publisher and distributor warehouses have instituted new procedures to keep their workers safe. This necessarily means that deliveries are slower than we are used to. We urge everyone to accept the idea that good things are worth waiting for. Remember, getting a package a day or two late might mean a life was saved. Thank you for your patience.
