AS OF MARCH 19TH, WE ARE OPEN FOR WEB (24/7) AND PHONE ORDERS (9AM - 5PM) ONLY. ORDERS ARE AVAILABLE FOR CURBSIDE PICKUP EVERY DAY BETWEEN 9AM - 5PM, OR, ORDERS OF $25 OR MORE CAN BE SHIPPED FOR FREE LOCALLY VIA USPS MEDIA MAIL.
WE HAVE TEMPORARILY CLOSED OUR DOORS TO THE PUBLIC FOR SHOPPING & BROWSING.
We have kept our doors open to inquisitive minds 360 days a year for 45 years; through fires, storms, and earthquakes, good times and bad. However, in these unprecedented circumstances the health and safety of our staff, customers, and community need to come first. We expect to re-open our doors to the public as soon as it is safe to do so.
We hope that you will continue to support us by placing orders on this website, which can be done 24/7, or over the phone at (805) 682-6787 between the hours of 9am – 5pm, 7 days a week. We will ship local orders over $25 via media mail for free, deliver locally when we can, and offer curbside pick-up (between 9am – 5pm). We know part of the magic of Chaucer's is browsing, so purchasing gift cards for future use helps us now and can be used at any time (they never expire!).
We are incredibly grateful for the support we've received from the community and hope for your ongoing support of Chaucer's (and other local businesses) so that we are all able to return once we get through this public health crisis together.
Chaucer's Books is an independent, full service, overstocked bookstore located on upper State Street in Santa Barbara, CA and has been a mainstay for booklovers near and far since 1974. We carry north of 150,000 titles and will happily do anything we can to swiftly procure books for you that we don't currently carry in stock. We're committed to providing our community with an impressive depth and breadth in any and all subjects as well as excellent customer service (including recommendations from our well-read staff). Come in and say hello!
