To the Argo community:
We hope you are well and holding up well in these trying times. Given the public health situation around Covid-19, we’ve decided to move to reduced hours until further notice. We will be open 12-3 PM Monday through Friday.
During those hours, we will be offering curbside pickup of books, for those who wish to reserve books or place orders in advance through our website www.argobookshop.ca
or over the phone. We accept tap payments and you can just receive your books! We are also offering gift certificates
you can buy through our site, and we’re still shipping books out, if you prefer. You can also come in and browse during that time, but given the cozy size of the store, we are limiting customers to 2 at a time.
We are offering events online, including our book club discussion next Thursday at 7, now being joined by author Kai Cheng Thom. We’re also launching a new discussion series of reading the Japanese Classics one chapter at a time, starting with the Tale of the Heike; more information about timing for that next week.
We continue to also offer audiobooks through Libro.fm. If you start a new membership
with them using the code SHOPBOOKSTORESNOW, you will get two audiobooks for the price of one, and 100% of that sale will go to the store! It's a great way to pass the time if you're staying home, all while supporting your local indie.
We appreciate your support deeply, and we hope to provide you with your literary needs as best we can during this period.
- Your staff at the Argo
