Duck's Cottage and Downtown Books are here for our loyal fans and customers, visitors and locals all winter long. We continue to operate regular hours while aspiring to the highest safety protocols. We require masks, ask that you sanitize hands upon entering our stores and maintain a six foot distance from other customers. Additionally, Duck's Cottage has a 6 customer limit. We do our best to keep wait times to a minimum during this unprecedented time and thank you in advance for your patience and positive attitude.
We are still experiencing shipping delays as the USPS continues to catch up after the incredible holiday logjam. While media mail is always an option for book orders, please remember it is untrackable, uninsured and definitely takes longer than ground shipping. We are looking forward 2021.. to continuing to serve our customers, friends and fans.. and providing the beautiful Outer Banks with the best books, coffee and customer service.
