The Little Book Club Closing
You may have read my past reviews on the Little Book Club. I really liked their books, but ultimately canceled due to slow shipping times.
The following was emailed to customers today:
From its inception, The Little Book Club has been a part-time labor of love for Sara and I. We started the company so our kids could both be exposed to great new books, and so that they could learn about the work that goes into starting a company.
However, its become clear to us that The Little Book Club has grown into something that needs more than part-time attention. Inventory issues (theft and supplier delays), shipping logistics, and 24 hour customer service are all things that have proven too much for our little company.
We’ve decided that closing down the company is the right thing to do for our family.
Over the next few weeks, final boxes will be sent out, refunds will be posted if you’ve been billed for the next month already, and accounts will be closed.
To be clear, no payment will go unaccounted for – you will either receive a box for the month, or a full refund in the very near future.
Starting this company has been a joy – we’ve met many wonderful people, and have been exposed to many wonderful children’s books we never would have discovered otherwise.
Sara and I wanted to sincerely thank all of you for being members of The Little Book Club.
It is sad to see another subscription box go, especially one promoting books. If you are looking for another book subscription box, Sproutkin has two different programs.
