We sell every genre of book, and can pre-order too. While you’re in, you can pick up the rest of your favourite author’s collection too. Visit or call us today for more information!
One of the largest collections of used books in the lower mainland, we are located in the heart of Downtown Abbotsford, only minutes from the highway.
That’s right! You can find new records from Radiohead, Lana Del Rey, and more. If you don’t see it here, feel free to ask us to order it in for you!
The Berry Beat Festival is taking place this upcoming weekend (July 9th & 10th 2016), and we will be holding a big sale! We are currently celebrating our 25th anniversary, so for the entire weekend (including the Friday!), everything in the store will be 20% off. Books, records, you name it!
However, getting into the store might be slightly more complicated at this time of year, as Essendene Ave. and Montrose Ave. will both be shut down for the festival. Our back parking lot will be accessible via W Railway St., but it will probably be packed full. That is the main reason why we extended the sale back to include Friday, so you can still experience the great deals without the huge hassle!
Last but not least, we will absolutely NOT be taking books in trade this Saturday and Sunday due to the Berry Beat Festival being our busiest weekend of the whole year. If you’re looking to bring books by, please do so before or after the weekend!
