Indie bookstore closures

Shipley Books Plaque

Pages is shutting down in Toronto. It’s quite a shame, it was definitely one of my favourite bookstores, and always one of my stops along Queen St. I also discovered that Shipley Books on Charing Cross Road, in London, was forced to shutdown this year. Hopefully, both are able to find affordable spaces to continue operation, or we’ll just continue the march towards big box store hell.
