Del Mar

Dear Reader,

We are thankful for the support that has been shown to the store in myriad ways.  Thankful, too, for still being able to allow people into the store.  We've been careful about the numbers of people in the store and are doing appointments to make things run smoother.

Please give us a call before coming in and we can schedule a 15 minute appointment for you.  This minimizes lines, saves you time, and gives you unharried time in the store.  Of course, DIESEL booksellers will be at the ready with able recommendations for best gifts and finding just the right books.  We are very good at that!

As with many businesses this season, we anticipate shortages on books and distribution delays.  This is why November is the new December, and it's best to get your shopping done early.  We are open 10-6 M-F, and 10-5 Saturday and Sunday.  We are ready, happy to wrap, and working to make the most of these difficult times!

Thanks for your support and encouragement.  We look forward to sharing the wide world of books with you, your family, and friends this season.  It is important to stay in touch with each other.  And books, and bookstores, are two time-honored ways to do just that. 

Gratefully,
Alison, John & all DIESELFolk

A Symbolic Move? Friday's Retail Reopen Changes Little for San Diego Businesses

By Jennifer Van Grove, Brittany Meiling, and Karen Pearlman via San Diego Union-Tribune

EXCERPT:

The latest step in reopening California puts caution ahead of capitalism. Per Gov. Gavin Newsom’s orders some “low-risk” retail businesses can reopen, but only for curbside pickup. And there is a long list of rules they must follow to keep customers and employees safe. Although low-risk retail hasn’t been clearly defined by the state, the governor has used bookstores, music stores, toy shops and florists as examples.

Now Open in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center! 

DIESEL booksellers with our first customer!

 

By KAREN BILLING via Del Mar Times

EXCERPT:

Readers rejoice: A book store is returning to Del Mar Highlands Town Center with DIESEL, A Bookstore.

It’s been five years since Barnes & Noble closed after 21 years when the center renovations began, a heartbreaker for both the community and the center owner. Donahue Schriber Realty Group pledged to bring back a book store when the expansion was complete and they are delivering on that promise with DIESEL, a longtime California indie book store that also has a location in Brentwood.

“A bookstore has been the number one request from our customers for a number of years. We are thrilled to have a long-established independent bookstore join the center”, said Patrick Donahue, chairman and CEO of Donahue Schriber Realty Group. “Diesel’s new Del Mar Highlands location will be a great addition to the community.”
