this is a great store for getting used books. very friendly clerks, who are the owners, and i had a feeling of friendlines here and i will come back again.
This isn't the biggest used book store in Calgary, but they had a few things I couldn't find anywhere else, and in great condition. I love ratty old books, but this place doesn't lean in that direction. They have a nice collection of travel, science, and nature books. There's a couple racks of vinyl records as well.
My kids love coming here, they bring their books to trade in for a little cash and quickly pick up a new one with the help of the owner. She is delightful and welcoming. The shelves are filled top to bottom with books so it can be overwhelming to find something on your own, but staff are always open to helping and will make a great effort to find the book you will enjoy!
[Written by my husband who is a serious collector of fine books]: "An ok bookstore with lots of cool stuff. Be careful trying to get stuff out of their "warehouse." They get your phone number, call you, tell you to come by to pick up the book and they sell it behind your back. Seen better customer service."
