The Official Bookstore for Grinnell College
The Pioneer Bookshop is open with public health safety measures in place. To keep everyone as safe as possible, we require masks, provide hand sanitizer and limit the number of shoppers to 10 at one time. Sometimes that means the door is locked. Ring the doorbell and we'll help you. We have installed clear barriers where face-to-face interaction is common.
Shop in our online store. You can choose to have us ship to your home or deliver to the campus mailroom, or you can pick up your purchase in the store when it is ready.
