Presenting La BOOK-tique!




Last week I blogged about my new bookstore, Beazley Books. This week I thought I would write a post about another used bookstore in the area called La BOOK-tique. This store has been a local fixture for 20 years and the owners, Ron and Monica, are friends of mine, my husband and my daughter (who works there part-time). As a matter of fact they have been very supportive of us in our own new bookstore venture. They've let us go through their overstock and given us great prices, and lent us their ladder and other tools. Ron visited our store several times before it opened lending his expertise and advice on the best way to build our bookshelves, and even built a few! We couldn't ask for a better neighbor - not to mention friend!

La BOOK-tique carries over 30,000 books from all genres. They buy and sell good quality fiction and non-fiction. Customers have the option of a discount frequent buyer card - whereby for every $50 they spend, they will get $5 off their next purchase. New customers will leave with a free pen to jot down all the titles they've read! You can visit La-BOOK-tique in Pointe-Claire, Québec at 79 Donegani. Give them a call (514-694-5553) or email bktq2@aol.com for for information about your book needs.

Here are some photos from inside the store...

I can't believe they've been there for 20 years and I've never been to this store! How nice of them to help you set up your store. I'm going to have to come out and visit both!

In addition, Ron knows his books. He can offer suggestions depending on what you're looking for. So now we have two great bookstores to browse through...
