Customer Update Monday 30th March 2020 & Supporting you through Coronavirus

Browns Operations Update Monday 30th March 2020

Further to the changing situation & government advice, our main warehouse which is the largest UK stock holding of books in the UK, will also temporarily close from Tuesday 31st March. Therefore we will be unable to dispatch any physical books/multimedia until the warehouse is able to re-open.

We are still here and all online!

Customer Care, Website, Marketing, Selectors, Accounts, IT & Senior Management are all working remotely!

The website & ebook platform are fully operational providing full access to our eBook content.

All orders for physical books can be placed and will be collated and dispatched when we re-open the warehouse. The warehouse teams and buyers will be ensuring all order requests placed in this period are secured and fulfilled as priority when we return to dispatching.

Serviced, Direct, Parent & Student Orders – Deliveries On Hold

Any orders for servicing will be held and released for processing when we are able to open the operations department.

Any direct orders ready to pick will hopefully be dispatched on Monday 30th March for delivery this week. Orders from Tuesday 31st March will be collated and fulfilled as soon as we can re-open the warehouse.
