Dear Book Bonding customers
After four years operating in two locations, Book Bonding owners Mark Neicho and Natasha Boyd have decided to consolidate their energies and revert back to one store. To this end, the Essendon bookstore will close at the end of this financial year – Friday 30th June, 2017. This decision has not been easy as we have loved servicing our Moonee Valley readers for almost ten years- as in store customers, bookclub members, event attendees and seeing our young customers grow into avid readers.
This 3 month advance notice is given so our customers have adequate time to use their gift vouchers and/or redeem their loyalty points. However, these are all transferable to our 3/29 Hamilton St Gisborne store if you choose to visit us there after 30th June.
Our school business will continue to operate as normal but move to our central solo base in Gisborne. There will be no change to Mark doing free weekly school deliveries or Natasha making school visits. Our Essendon bookclubs will continue to operate as normal until the end of the annual year sign-up. An individual email to those concerned was sent on Mon 3rd April
We have appreciated the loyalty shown to us over 10 years and thoroughly enjoyed the book conversations shared with our wonderful Essendon customers. We invite you all to farewell drinks at close of business/operation at our Essendon bookstore on Friday 30th June 4pm.
We thank you in advance for your support during this transition.
Natasha Boyd and Mark Neicho, Co-owners Book Bonding (dated Monday 3rd April 2017)
