Bookshop Description: (Est. 1987)

ONE OF THE EARLIEST ECOMMERCE INDEPENDENT UK BOOKSELLERS : Offices only at this address, personal customers always welcome. You can pay cash or card here for gift tokens (including by Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay). First Bookshop's proprietors were the very first in the world to sell and redeem Book Tokens online, 20 years ago! This UK & Ireland freepost service is still unmatched today in its exact format by any other provider (more free card designs, more free delivery options, freephone longer opening hours etc) and was later expanded to include Theatre Tokens. Both are the official national schemes and available to buy in person from the Casni Charity Office, or free on 0800 6125350 (lines open daily 10am until 8pm). All Derry sales in person, help support this local Charity, however their office opening hours are subject to variation, due to volunteer staffing availabilities. Therefore, to avoid disappointment, please telephone first if planning to make a personal visit for buying token cards. In Northern & Southern Ireland, our Book Token Cards are valid in person at all branches of Easons (plus lots of other Bookshops too). Mainland Britain it's all the big Booksellers and most smaller independents. Theatre Tokens are not valid for use in Ireland, but every Theatre in London's West End accepts these, also online at https://officiallondontheatre.com/theatre-tickets/ AND with over 200 venues around England, Scotland and Wales. We first started selling and redeeming tokens online in 1999 from our Garforth Bookshop in Leeds, which was a global internet exclusive service at that time and long before anyone else. The Garforth Bookshop first opened its doors in May 1987 although our founder Roger Crossland has been a Bookseller since 1974 originally with WH Smith (starting there as a Trainee Manager at the age of 16). Roger was the very first UK Bookseller to 'price match' Amazon too, in the year 2000, but today most books here are cheaper than amazon.co.uk when paying in full online by credit card or debit card.

Opening hours:

Mon-Fri 10am-3pm (Office Hours Only)
