Welcome to Andover Bookstore on Bookshop.org! Established in 1809, the Andover Bookstore is the oldest independent bookstore in the United States. You can learn a little more about our history here. Please note that the inventory you see online here is not the same as our in-store inventory! What you are browsing online here is the inventory in a giant warehouse nowhere near Andover. We might have some of the things you find here in the actual store but not all. Also, gift cards purchased from Bookshop.org cannot be used in the store in Andover, and gift cards purchased in the store in Andover cannot be used on Bookshop.org. You can feel confident, though, that your purchase online here does directly support the Andover Bookstore in Andover, MA, and we're very grateful for your contribution to keeping our little slice of history alive and well. Thank you for supporting indie bookstores and happy reading!
