This is our first winter and it has not been easy. Being a tourist town, I knew winter in Virginia Beach would be a struggle but because of the lack of visitors to our great resort area, Finch Books has had to make some changes. Time will tell if these changes become a seasonal tradition or not but for now this is the way things have to be.
Hours here have been shortened to Tues-Sat 9am-5pm and Sun 10a-3p. We will still be closed on Monday.
We will no longer (for the next few months at the least) be carrying fresh pastries due to the added cost. As soon as spring/summer traffic picks up we will absolutely be resuming the sale of those delicious Sugar Plum pastries.
Coffee and Tea:
We will absolutely continue selling coffee and tea although because we don't like waste here at Finch we will wait to make a pot of coffee until it is ordered. This means you might have to wait a minute or two to get your coffee but on the other hand you know it will be fresh. Tea will still only take a moment. Also we are adding flavors to add to your coffee or tea for just $0.25. Currently we are offering Dark Chocolate, Hazelnut, Lavender, Blackberry, and Vanilla (also sugar-free Vanilla). We are always looking to add flavors so if there's a flavor you'd love to see let us know.
Deals and Discounts:
We used to offer a different discount each day but for the next few months we will be having a month long special with other deals or discounts peppered throughout. The deal for December is 10% off all gift items including candles, bathbombs, soaps, flasks, notebooks, totebags and more. For any additional deals be sure to check our deals and discount page or our social media.
One thing that won't change during this long, cold winter is our love and appreciation for all of our customers. Whether you bought a book for a dollar or spent a hundred dollars here, we are so happy to meet and serve each and every one of you.
Happy Holidays and Keep Reading!
