Canadian Independent Bookstore Day: April 24, 2021

Saturday, Apr 10, 2021 at 4:06pm

We are thrilled that Canadian Independent Bookstore Day is coming up on Saturday, April 24, 2021!

Canadian Independent Bookstore Day was started as a way for readers across Canada to celebrate their beloved local indie bookstores and the contributions these businesses make to their communities. By shopping locally for your books on April 24, you are advocating for independent businesses, supporting a flourishing bookselling community, and investing in Canadian culture.

As Canada's largest and most eventful indie bookstore, we are proudly taking part in this nationwide celebration. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are, sadly, unable to plan any special events for the big day, however the Canadian Independent Booksellers Association (CIBA) is running an online contest across Canada with a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

The contest is simple:

  1. Buy books. You may shop online, by phone, or in-store with us April 24-25, 2021. Be sure to keep your receipts and all emails we send you!
  2. Review the prizes. You can see the full list on CIBA's website. Be sure to read the conditions carefully and select your favourite prize(s).*
  3. Enter. Links to dedicated entry forms will be found on CIBA's website on April 24 and 25. Each prize will have its own entry form, and proof of purchase will be required (see below for more details**).
  4. Find out if you've won! CIBA staff will contact prospective winners with next steps on April 26 via email.

*One important thing to note: Each book you purchase on April 24/25 counts as one entry. So if you buy ten books, you can enter to win ten different prizes! Or you can pool your entries into select prizes.

**Proof of purchase is required for each entry. For orders made in person or by phone, you will need to include a photograph of your printed receipt. For orders made on our website, you will need to take a screenshot of the confirmation email you receive from us (which you will receive as soon as you've submitted your order).

For full contest details, please visit CIBA's website. Be sure to bookmark that page so that you can get back to it quickly when it's time to submit your contest entries.

Thank you for shopping with us and for supporting a locally-owned, Canadian independent company.
