Important update – 30/03/20

Temporary suspension of all orders


Today we received news which will impact heavily upon Red Lion Books. 

Our trusted main supplier has temporarily suspended the delivery of all books and so, it is with great sadness, that we have taken the difficult decision not to accept any new orders – with immediate effect.  

We were not given any notice of our supplier’s warehouse closing but we respect how fast changing the world is at the moment and that the safety and well-being of their workforce is paramount.

We will be working hard to clear all outstanding orders over the coming days so that any existing orders should be processed (or refunded).  If you have made payment for a subscription package of books due to arrive in May or June we will contact you separately and make relevant refunds.

We have continued over the past few weeks to do our very best to provide our usual high quality of service, reacting to challenges as we received them, with good humour, hard work and a dash of creative thinking  – but this current news is a challenge we are unable to overcome.  We will keep you updated as and when new opportunities arise which might allow us to satisfy your orders once again.

Thank you for the support you have shown to us and other independent bookshops. It has really kept us motivated.  Your enormous enthusiasm and loyalty to the shop have moved us and for that, we are extremely grateful.
