Welcome back into the shop!

As of AUGUST 28th our door is once again open for in store browsing.

This is what we are doing to keep the store safe:
  • we are limiting the amount of customers to ensure physical distancing is possible  
  • customers and staff must wear face masks at all times
  • we are offering hand sanitizer for customers upon entry
  • we regulary sanitize high-touch public areas and debit machine/cashout area
  • we've changed our hours to ensure the shop can be thoroughly cleaned every day
  • we are operating with limited in-store staffing, and all staff are fully vaccinated 
  • we continue to sell books via our website and have a fully functional online ordering system
  • we continue to offer curbside pickup
  • we have teamed up with  Send-It Courier  and OnRoads Delivery to deliver our local orders
  • we are hosting and supporting virtual book launches, book clubs and author events
  • we are continuing to support teachers and school boards remotely
You can always visit our webstore to submit a quote/order, or email us your inquiry at
