We're turning 55!
That's right: This September marks 55 years since Jim Munro first set up shop in our original location—a long, narrow space on Yates Street that would later appear in Alice Munro's short stories. A lot has changed since 1963, when paperbacks were a rarity in bookstores and the notion of reading from a screen was restricted to science fiction. But we've held onto the values that helped that little shop grow into one of the world's top 10 bookstores: passion, curiosity, and a fierce commitment to the readers who help us thrive year after year.
So this fall, we'd like to thank all of our customers for what each of you do to keep Munro's a haven for book lovers everywhere. None of this would be possible without you. 
Here's to 55 more years of reading and dreaming!
