A Brief One from Niagara At Large publisher Doug Draper
Posted September 12th, 2019 on Niagara At Large
Hannelore Headley Old & Fine Books in St. Catharines, Niagara on 71 Queen Street near Montebello Park
(Let me start by saying that this is not a paid ad. It is an updated version of a piece I posted about this two great bookstores when they both hold month-long sales like this a year or so ago – Doug Draper, NAL)
I am posting this one because I’ve always been a strong supporter of what are left of our great old brick and mortar book and record stores in Niagara, Ontario and across the border in the Buffalo and Niagara Falls, New York areas, and I urge you to support them as a friend of book and record stores by becoming a customer.
And it is a great time to become a customer because right now, two of the very best of the used bookstores in our Niagara region are having sales of 50 per cent off most of their inventory, every day they are open, right up to the end of this month of September.
The Write Bookshop, in the downtown of St. Catharines on 285 St. Paul Street
Those two stores – both of them independently owned and run by very nice and knowledgeable people – are Hannelore Headley Old & Fine Books on 71 Queen Street, off Lake Street near Montebello Park in St. Catharines, and The Write Bookshop, right in the downtown of St. Catharines on 285 St. Paul Street.
The following is a short message from the people at Hannelore Headley Old & Fine Books on their sale –
“There is still time to stop by for our spring book sale; 50% off all used books, and 20% off books marked firm.
There are exceptions, for example books mark new or on consignment can’t be discounted and credit slips won’t apply. So come by and help us make some space, let’s get those books out of boxes! (Sale runs until end of this September).
And don’t forget the similar sale at The Write Bookshop on nearby St. Paul Street in the city.
Please check these two great stores out, and vote as often as you can with your wallet to keep real book and record stores alive!
