A letter from our founder regarding covid-19

To Our Dear Customers - 

This is such a challenging time we’re in, and I wanted to give you an update on our business at Read Between The Lines® in light of COVID-19.

The health and safety of our customers and team is my top priority, and, like many businesses around the country, I have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our brick-and-mortar stores through Saturday, March 28th.

We will so miss seeing your faces in person in Dallas and Plano over the next two weeks, and, while our physical stores are closed, will be hard at work providing even more robust selections and surprises for you in our online shop, and preparing to reopen our stores and get you ready for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, coming up soon!

Our online shop is open 24/7 during this time at readbetweenthelines.com. We’ll be fulfilling orders promptly and daily with normal ship times, and can’t wait to serve you here! 

P.S. Enjoy free shipping on all U.S. orders!

Know your support of our small business via online purchases means so much! Not only will you be sustaining the viability of our brand and team through this difficult time - you’ll also be a part of the financial health of the many wonderful makers we’re honored to carry.

Although giants like Amazon are handy for so much, know your purchases right now with small businesses of all kinds - from stores to local coffee shops, restaurants and services - truly will determine whether those hard-working small teams will be in business when COVID-19 has remitted. It’s that serious. And you can make that much of an impact!

If you’re staying in, please shop small by purchasing via online shops, utilizing take-out services in communities where dining-in has been temporarily prohibited, and sharing the businesses you adore with those you love, so they can support, too. We’re all in this together, and every purchase matters, truly!

Please don’t hesitate to reach out via email at hello@readbetweenthelines.com or on social media @rbtlpaper with any questions you have. We’ll get right back with you!

Want a good scripture to repeat as a mantra? This is my very favorite - it’s a really powerful one to read aloud, too!

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Take excellent care and lots of deep breaths. I’m confident our world will come out of this with new strength, perspective, and appreciation for all we have in love, life and one another.

So grateful for you.
