Q: Is there a list of books I can buy from if I cannot attend?
A: No, this is unfortunately not possible.
Q: Will there be children’s books available?
A: Yes! There will be a wide selection of children’s books available, but as these are always the first to sell out we recommend that those looking to buy them attend the sale early in order to avoid disappointment.
Q: Can I use my Fanatics card and Fanatics Coupons at the sale?
Q: Will there be credit card facilities available?
A: There will definitely be credit card facilities available.
Q: Will every book on the sale be R20? Even if it is a Hardcover book?
A: Yes! Absolutely everything on the sale is R20.
Q: I am looking for a specific title or genre, can you tell me if there will be stock available?
A: There will be a wide range of stock available but we cannot guarantee availability of any specific titles or genres.
Q: Why is there no Warehouse Sale in Cape Town or Durban?
A: We only have one warehouse currently which is based at our Head Office in Johannesburg. In the past we have attempted to hold a mini Warehouse Sale in Durban and Cape Town, unfortunately those attempts were so unsuccessful that we discontinued any future plans. Additionally the cost of transporting the books would negate any profits we make and there would be nothing to give to our charities this year.
Q. I can’t make it on the Friday, will there still be good books left by Sunday?
A: Although there will be a large range of stock available we cannot guarantee that there will be stock still available on the Sunday or Monday, the sale will be on a first come first served basis.
Q: Which charities will benefit from the funds raised?
A: We have a very long list of literacy organisations that will benefit from the funds raised. They will be kept in an account for our CSI efforts and as always we will post updates on the ways the funds are being used on our social media pages. The majority of these funds will go towards helping libraries in underprivileged areas.
Q: Can I order books from the warehouse sale online?
A: No, the sale is a physical sale and will not be available on our website.
Q: Will there be dedicated parking for those attending the sale?
A: There will not be dedicated parking and attendees are asked to please be considerate of those working in the area when parking. Please make sure you do not park anyone in or obstruct the entrances to the businesses in the area. There is a Gautrain bus stop close to our offices, but please be aware that the buses only run on weekdays so there will not be a service available for the Saturday or Sunday for Gautrain commuters. When taking the Gautrain to our offices you will need to disembark at the Sandton station, take the Gallo Manor (S2) bus route and get off the bus at stop S2-6. From the stop you will need to walk down Dartfield Road and take the first turn on your right into Commerce Crescent. Our offices and Warehouse are at the corner and will be clearly marked on the day.
