The Pioneer Bookshop Is Open With Public Health Measures in Mind
In keeping with the Grinnell College policy of low density and low contact, the Pioneer Bookshop is open with a 15-guest capacity for limited hours per day. Masks are required and hand sanitizer is available throughout the store. Designated paths have been set up to allow customers to move through the store with the least amount of contact with each other. Clear barriers are in place where contact could be face-to-face, such as at the cash registers.
If you are in Grinnell, we encourage you to order what you can from our online store and make an appointment to pick it up curbside or at the door. Otherwise, we can ship your order to your home.
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.
