Toronto's oldest bookstore is moving

Glad Day Bookshop is not only Toronto's oldest bookstore; it's the world's oldest LGBTQ bookstore as well. It's been serving the city from its storefront on Yonge Street and now it's likely moving east to Church Street.

This issue is that the Glad Day Bookshop's current space isn't accessible to those with mobility issues. It wants its new location to be welcoming for all people.

When it moves, Glad Day will reportedly expand its offerings. Right now it's considering introducing new lines of business, such as a cafe and bar as well as board games when it relocates.

To help fund everything, the bookstore is running an Indiegogo campaign where it hopes to raise $50,000 to help fund the big move.
