Our Heart and Soul

     One finds the Cricket Book Shop housed in a charming building tucked in the quiet village of Ashton, and those who have religiously returned over the years, it signifies going back to the days when shopping was an enjoyable and civilized experience.  


     Longtime customers are warmly greeted as family members, and strangers are welcomed as newly made friends.  and, indeed there are many longtime customers, as the Cricket has been in existence for 47 years.

     At the Cricket you can still find knowledgeable and helpful staff anxious to offer assistance if needed.  Or you may find, as have many customers, that just browsing undisturbed for an hour or two can offer as much enjoyment.  

     So, if the irritation of indifferent clerks, monotonous merchandise, clogged highways and endless parking lots send you into "mall shock," perhaps a short drive to the Cricket will restore your spirits, and you too will count yourself as a member of the ever growing family of satisfied customers

We hope to see you soon!
