You know what they say—the holidays come earlier every year, and we don't want you to be caught off guard. So we're here to offer a suggestion or two that will take some of the pressure off your holiday shopping this year.
You see, the earlier you shop, the better your chances of saving money, getting everyone on your list exactly what they want, and keeping your stress levels out of the red zone. We want to help you do all of those things. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Make your list—checking it twice is optional.
You likely already have a pretty good idea of what your friends and family members are into. Mom needs a new Bible? Dad’s a diehard history buff? You have one kid who’s obsessed with Young Adult fantasy and another who can’t get enough manga? Your best friend is a Harry Potterhead? Your other best friend is a Funko fiend? Easy. Books-A-Million has everything you need to make them all happy.
Shop early. Yes, this early.
We strive to keep our shelves stocked and our warehouse full to bursting with an amazing array of inventory. But the world is still contending with certain obstacles—shipping delays, product shortages—and we want to make sure you get everything on that list! So don’t wait until December to place those orders. Get them in now and leave the shipping scares to those who aren’t as savvy as you.
Put us to work!
Manga can be a tricky thing to navigate if you’re not familiar. It can be a tough game-time decision when you’re trying to choose between two World War II books. Our selection of Bibles, Funko, and Harry Potter merchandise may seem overwhelming. Never fear—our associates are happy to help. Give them just a little information about your giftees and they’ll be able to point you in the right direction.
Our website makes it easy to find what you're looking for, too! With carefully labeled sections and dropdown menus directing you to the collections you're looking for, plus select pages that let you shop by age, character, or series, you'll find the goods in no time.
We get it—not everyone is an early shopper. Maybe you need to wait until the holiday spirit hits, or at least until Thanksgiving is in the rearview. That’s understandable, and we’ll still be here for you with our fantastic selection, irresistible offers, and complete commitment to our customers.
If you're cutting it too close, you can always make your purchase online and pick it up in a store near you. Also? No one ever turned down a gift card.
