Building Steam With a Grain of Salt

Not many updates here this month because it's been very, very busy at both shops, and blogging always comes at the tail end of a long list of higher value activities, including:

• Doubling the number of new books available at our Kitsilano location (3133 West Broadway) and dramatically increasing the number of new cultural studies and philosophy titles at Main Street

• Better organizing the stock at both shops (no more half-empty shelves, books piled one on top of the other, or huge overflowing stacks of stuff in the aisles)

• Expanding our book distribution network once again.  We can now obtain 99% of the books currently in print in North America in approximately 5-10 working days, typically at US$ cover price and often less.  Unlike Amazon, Chapters/Indigo and the rest of the big online outfits, we never charge for shipping.  And, if you special order $100 or more of new books at once, we'll promptly deliver your books to your home or office at no additional charge.

Interested?  Give us a call or drop in.
