“Shop local” is more than just a sentiment to us, and it lives at the core of all we do. We work hard to purchase all our office supplies and sundries from local businesses like Supply Squad and Allegra Printing, and it’s no surprise that the folks at Wild Joe’s know our booksellers by sight, even in a mask.
We also love partnering with local schools, and supporting our teachers. We offer a 20% discount on classroom materials for teachers in Montana. Visit our Educator’s page for more information on partnership programs like book fairs, author visits, and more.
