One of the hubs for Lunenburg's literary community, Lexicon Books, announced on April 8 it is closing its physical and online stores temporarily due to the ongoing public health crisis.

"We will continue to monitor this ever-evolving situation and will revisit our decision as circumstances change," the store indicated in a notice to LighthouseNOW.

"This Thursday and Friday we can still process online orders for personal delivery in the area, but unfortunately we can no longer accept orders that we have to send by mail. As always, we are so very grateful for all the love and support that you have given us as a community of readers, and we look forward to serving you again in the (hopefully) near future," the notice read.

On March 30, the bookstore Lunenburg Bound, announced on Facebook it was closing its physical store, but suggested customers could shop online and the premises would be open on Thursdays for pick-ups and deliveries.
