Consider Griffin Bay Staff as Your Personal Shopper

They can help you find just the right cards, gifts, offer recommendations and/or substitutions. And then make arrangements for your payment and pick-up or delivery time. This is an opportunity for you to keep informed about what’s new in fiction and non-fiction as well as to ask questions, to jabber a bit. Call 360-378-5511 Monday--Friday, 11:00 am—2:00 pm.
