Welcome to Puzzles!

COVID-19 UPDATE: PUZZLES is officially Open 10AM-5PM every day, although amidst our new uncertainty, we are often open later if there is foot traffic!  Per State Law, all guests must wear masks and respect social-distancing, facilitated by distance markers taped on the floor.  We rigorously disinfect the premises throughout the day.  We are also happy to offer pre-arranged curb-side pickup.  We have always defined ourselves based on trying to provide an exceptional in-store customer experience, and we therefore have not engaged in E-Commerce in the past, especially as we have so little space to accommodate and store shipping materials.  You know how small we are if you have visited us!  Given the number of continued special requests, and to help those still in isolation especially, we are doing what we can with lower than usual staffing to meet the demands of the shipping requests that we do receive one by one.  We are happy to share “puzzling” suggestions by text message (jigsaws, “thinking games”, brainteasers and books) based on your brand and size preferences as well as your personal interests, but we do NOT have a listing of current product availability on the website – photos are for illustration only.  We will ship (minimum of two puzzles) just as soon as we can – usually within a day or two.  Please be patient.  Despite COVID-19 supply issues, we still maintain a huge selection of puzzles.  Thank you for your custom – and may you and yours remain safe, healthy and well.
