Please read all instructions on our website and emails we send you about your order. These contain important information about your order and about our updated policies.

Thank you for supporting our store and our team during this turbulent and most unlikely time.  We appreciate your orders and your kind words. As the governor permits, we will slowly re-open the store, phase by phase with the safety of employees and customers in mind. That means we may be opening more slowly than the governor’s phased approach.

All orders completed on or before June 7th, 2020, will be fulfilled by our distribution partner, Ingram, and have been or will be shipped directly from their warehouse. All orders placed after June 7th will be fulfilled from An Unlikely Story.

As not only our store but the entire book industry gets back up to speed, there may be some delays in book deliveries. Please bear with us. We are currently about 2 business days behind in processing online orders.

Curbside Pickup:
For the health and safety of everyone involved, all customers must wear a face mask, follow social distancing protocols, and follow instructions from An Unlikely Story staff during curbside pick-up.
 

We are offering curbside pick-up as of Monday, June 25th, between 10am and 5pm Monday-Sunday. All orders must be paid for in advance either online or over the phone. We will be unable to complete any transactions at the door. You will receive a notification email or a call confirming that your order is ready for pickup. We'll give you a time slot for you to come pick up your order. Please make sure you come during your appointed time. 

Thank you again for your encouragement and support, we at An Unlikely Story are so grateful to each and every one of you. As we work through this time together, we will keep you updated on our progress. We are living through some unusual times but we will come back better than ever.
