Open by Appointment or Pick Up at the Door
Due to heightened public health concerns, the Pioneer Bookshop will not be open to walk-in shoppers. Instead, we will offer shopping by appointment or pick up at the door. The staff remain available by phone and email Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. You may call 641-269-3424 or email. We will personally help you select what you’d like. We will deliver it to our front door, or to your car while you wait outside.
We encourage you to order what you can from our online store and make an appointment to pick up curbside or at the door. We can also send orders to the campus mail room or ship it to your home.
When picking up items, a face covering is required and you must remain a safe distance from others.
The College’s Bookstore
The College’s bookstore features Grinnell College clothing, school and office supplies, art supplies, consumer electronics, greeting cards, and gifts. It is the most reliable source to buy or rent new and used textbooks. The bookshop also offers a wide selection of fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books and toys. We take special orders for books and don’t charge shipping fees.
