Selling to Us on Whyte Avenue?

It has become customary for us to ask any customers wishing to sell to us to please avoid visiting the Whyte Avenue location during the Edmonton International Fringe Festival (August 14th through the 24th). This festival keeps us far too busy at that location to handle any incoming items, especially larger drop-off buys that can consist of dozens of boxes of items that require sorting. We humbly ask that you please visit one of our three other locations to sell to us during this period (please note that we are unable to provide customer parking at our downtown location). However, we would strongly encourage everyone to come down to Whyte Avenue during this time to take in the Fringe Festival and to, of course, browse our bookshop!


Books: Alive! Episode 2

Once again we are very pleased to present another installment in the locally produced webseries "Books: Alive!". Cwazy Wiwlma and the rest of the team at 378Films have been hard at work since the release of Episode 1, and the wait is finally over. Please show your support by sharing the video or leaving comments on youtube or tumblr. 


Operating Hours

Once again we need to inform our customers of changes to our operating hours. Whyte Avenue will be unaffected (open 9 a.m. till midnight, 7 days a week), and Jasper Avenue will remain unaffected; however, we are reducing our hours on both Stony Plain Road and Alberta Avenue. Please follow the links to see each location's new hours of operation. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause.


Pocketbook Policy Changes

In an effort to improve our efficiencies we have had to tweak our requirements concering pocketbook fiction. We are no longer able to accept, for purchase or trade, pocketbook fiction in the genres of Thriller, Romance, and General Fiction printed before the year 2004, and pocketbooks in the genre of Mystery printed before the year 1999. All of these books are now marked with a red tag on the cover and are currently available for purchase in our stores at a discount of 50% off; you may trade these books with us 1 for 1, but only for other red tagged books. 

We apologize for any inconvenience or frustartion this change may cause our customers.


The End of an Era

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our company's founder and President, Darwin Luxford. All Wee Book Inn locations will be closed Wednesday, February 19th, in honour of his life and achievements. He often remarked that he enjoyed meeting and getting to know the customers more than anything else about the business. His passion for life and generosity will be an inspiration to us all. We already miss you Darwin, may you rest in peace.
