What are the opening hours of the bookstore?
The Tajfuny Bookstore at 12 Chmielna Street in Warsaw is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 to 19:00 (11 am to 7 pm).
Can I pay by card at the bookstore?
Of course, we accept cash, card and Blik payments. But due to the pandemic, we will be grateful for card payments, preferably contactless.
Can you put the books aside for me?
Contact us via Facebook or by e-mail at email@example.com. We will let you know if the book is available at the moment. The best way to reserve the book is to place an order in our online shop and collect from the shop personally. Then you are sure the book waits for you.
Where can I check what events take place in the Tajfuny bookstore?
We inform about all planned events on our Facebook profile: https://facebook.com/tajfunypl/ We encourage you to follow and participate in the events. But due to the pandemic, we are suspending the organization of events in the bookstore until further notice.
How has the operation of the bookstore changed in relation to the pandemic?
We ask all visitors to our bookstore to follow the safety rules. Let’s take care of each other. Only one person or a group of people living together can stay in the bookstore at a time. If you see customers inside, wait in front of the bookstore. After entering, put on a mask and disinfect your hands with a gel prepared by us (if you do not have a mask with you, we will give you a disposable one). Please pay by card, preferably contactless. Orders placed online are processed normally, although the time of their implementation may be a little longer. We ask for your understanding.
I saw a great book on your website. Will I also find it in the bookstore?
Yes! If a book has the status of available in stock, it means that it is in our bookstore in Chmielna. What is important, we only have one or two copies of some titles, so it may happen that someone will buy it right before you. If you really wish to have the title or you are coming to us from far away, write or call us to make sure that the book is in a bookstore. It is also worth ordering a book online with a personal collection in Chmielna – then you will definitely get it.
Can I come for my book before opening / after closing the bookstore?
Unfortunately, no – booksellers in Chmielna are available only during the opening hours of the bookstore, from Tuesday to Saturday from 11.00 to 19.00 (11 am to 7 pm).
Are you looking for someone to help in the bookstore?
We inform about all recruitments on our website and social media – then we let you know who we are looking for to join the team. If you think that you are the perfect candidate and you absolutely want to work with us, write to us and justify.
