Beloved Toronto bookstores are now offering free local delivery
In times of social distancing, good books can be like good friends, so now might be the perfect time to get into that long novel you've been meaning to read.
Offering free delivery of books West End (King- Eglinton, Yonge-Jane ish). Pls call our Queen store 416-366-8973 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to place your orders.
