From its modest beginnings in 1986 as a 2000 sq. foot bookstore, Bayou Book Co. -Hallmark has grown in the ensuing 28 years to 6200 square feet of books, gifts, and Hallmark greeting cards. With a friendly staff of twelve employees, we at  Bayou Books strive to  offer customers  outstanding service and a welcoming warmth that  people expect in a home-town  environment.

We take pride in our community involvement whether co-hosting events with other area businesses or donating to our many local charities.  Our employees are long-standing members of the community and know our customer base well.

Whether choosing from our thousands of new book titles, deciding on just the right Hallmark card, or selecting the perfect gift, customers find a congenial home here in the store, and return time and again for the pleasant shopping experience.

IndieBound is about supporting independent bookstores and other businesses, and celebrating what makes them unique. It’s about reaching out, it’s about raising awareness, and it’s about taking pride in your community. It’s about what makes our hometowns more interesting.

indiebound-logo2What is IndieBound?
IndieBound is a socially conscious movement in support of independent businesses and shopping locally, starting with indie bookstores. It’s about raising awareness, it’s about reaching out, and it’s about taking pride in your community.

Why support independents?
When you shop at an independently owned business, your entire community benefits:

  • Spend $100 at a local and $68 of that stays in your community. Spend the same $100 at a national chain, and your community only sees $43.
  •  Local businesses create higher-paying jobs for our neighbors.
  •  More of your taxes are reinvested in your community–where they belong.
  •  Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
  •  Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community.
  • Local retailers are your friends and neighbors support them and they support you.
  • Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.
  • More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.
