In this day and age, you’ve got to get creative if you want to thrive in the bookselling world. That’s why we, the shop dogs of Parnassus Books, are pleased to unveil our latest innovative retail solution — a same-day book delivery service called Parnassus on Paws. Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek at how it will work:
We’ll start every day by collecting orders from customers and getting our instructions from the shop-people.
We tried carrying the orders in our mouths, but the shop-people said we were getting them too slobbery. So we’ve invested in some fancy wearable book luggage.
Will all the shop dogs be part of the Parnassus on Paws furry fleet? Well, almost all.
How will you know when your order is ready? We’ll sound the special notification howl.
Then it’ll be time to set off and take the books to their new homes.
Important: Canine couriers must get plenty of rest. We’ll need to take breaks every hour.
Need immediate delivery? We offer priority service! For urgent orders, we’ll dispatch our fastest runner (just ask the four lanes of Hillsboro Road traffic who watched her sprint across the street that time), book beagle Eleanor Roosevelt. She’ll be there in a flash.
We’re positive this new service will revolutionize the way you shop for books, just as soon as we get approval from our shop-people. Stay tuned.
Yours in business brilliance,
The shop dogs of Parnassus Books
