There’s a new bookstore opening in Vancouver!
In this day and age where bookstores are closing due to “American” book-pricing (anyone else notice that as book prices come down for Canadians, that production is moving to China and Korea? That’s the true cost of American prices in Canada – bye bye Canadian jobs), big box store sales and the general cost of running a business, it’s refreshing to see someone taking the chance.
The official opening is September 13th, and Huckleberry Books, unofficially open now, is located at Main @ 28th. While you’re there, I strongly suggest trying the cuisine over at the Cottage Bistro. (What the Cottage lacks in service, they make up for in flavour. Bring your patience.)
So, save the date, keep it free, and come down to check out Vancouver’s newest children’s bookstore.
