Pages Lives! (At Least for Another 6 Months)

With a February 28th deadline looming for finding a new home or ceasing operations, Pages Books & Magazines will live on at its current home, at least for a little bit longer. In a press release sent out early this morning, founder Marc Glassman announced that Pages has extended their lease for six more months at the corner of Queen and John, keeping them there until the end of August.

According to the release, landlord Pinedale Properties agreed to the extension after witnessing the outpouring of concern from the local arts community, media, customers and City Councillor Adam Vaughan's office.

As for what happens come September 1st, Glassman stated:

"We'll continue to work with Pinedale in hopes of securing a longer lease. Realistically, Pages will be looking for other locations as well. We look forward to forging partnerships, if possible, with like-minded enterprises and artist's centres. We are heartened by the groundswell of community support for our predicament and look forward to continuing a dialogue about the role that Pages plays in the cultural life of Toronto."
