Stony Plain Road - Lease Ending Sale

We welcome all of our customers to visit us at 15125 Stony Plain Road between now and the end of May 2015 for a massive "Lease Ending Sale". Drop by today to see the great deals we have on offer, but hurry in because the best stuff won't last long! 

Currently: 50% OFF EVERYTHING

Our lease for the Stony Plain Road location expires at the end of May 2015 and we feel that now is not the time to reopen in a new location. We are keeping a look-out for the right opportunity, but there is much more to consider than simply "location, location, location" when planning to open a new store.

We wish to thank all of our loyal friends who have supported us over the years and we look forward to providing you with the same great service and selection you expect from Wee Book Inn at our three remaining Edmonton locations.

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.


The Passing of Friends

It is with great sadness that we announce the recent passings away of both of our beloved Whyte Avenue cats, Yvan and Bunny.

They were distinguished ladies of venerable age, and both eventually succumbed to the sorts of maladies that advanced cat age brings with it. Losing the two of them in such a short space of time has come as something of a shock to staff and visitors alike.

Despite appearances, Bunny was only slightly younger than Yvan; at approximately sixteen and seventeen human years of age respectively, they were well into their eighties in cat terms.

The beautiful and much admired Bunny retired from the customer liaison spotlight early in her career and was more content to be adored at a distance by her fans, often teasing the clientele with her good looks and at least the promise of charm from behind the glass of the front counter. Not that she shirked her duties as an employee: her daily security patrols of the ground floor were as thorough as they were loud, until infirmity curtailed them.

The diminutive and quirky Yvan, who quietly managed the store's upper floor, always had time for her devoted legion of followers and would purr happily, gratefully and immediately in exchange for a caress and a gentle word, of which she received a steady supply. We thank all of those people who were so kind to her in her twilight years. We know that many of you stopped by as a regular part of your routine, just for her.

They will be fondly remembered and very sorely missed.
