The Book Shop is a beautiful anomaly - a small-town shop that holds the distinction of being one Canada's largest used bookstores. Spread over 464 square metres (5000 square feet), the Book Shop features a staggering collection of new, used and out-of-print books of every imaginable genre, alongside novels and mass-market paperbacks. You could easily spend an entire day in here and still not have covered even half of the store's unbelievably diverse inventory. If you're looking for something in particular, just ask and the store's helpful staff will hunt it down for you from amidst the towering bookshelves and boxes that cover every square inch of the space. Besides books, the Book Shop also houses a video and DVD rental library that boasts an extensive selection of foreign, independent, animated, children's and classic movies alongside the latest North American blockbusters. A haven for bibliophiles and movie buffs, the Book Shop is a true gem.
