Good News At Last From Our "Fire Damaged" Friends

We are very happy for our friends in Moose Jaw whose property and retail store were badly smoke damaged in the big fire there in the winter.  They are back in their suite above the store. They have their grand reopening of the store tomorrow. We are so grateful they are okay and that the only book store in Moose Jaw is going to remain viable.  

If you live in the Moose Jaw area or will be travelling that way in the future, here is their announcement.  Perhaps you would enjoy dropping in to peruse their wares:

Over a month has gone by since the Jubilee Block fire of March 12 closed Post Horizon Booksellers with collateral damage from the inferno.  The store has been scrubbed from top to bottom - even the books have been cleaned - and structural repairs to the building are underway.

The doors of PHB will open again on Tuesday, April 22.  New store hours will be 9:30am - 5:30pm, Monday through Saturday, and Thursday evening till 9:00pm.

To mark the occasion, we are hosting a "Book Ceilidh" on Tuesday evening, April 22,  from 6:30 - 8:00pm.  The event will feature music from Don Mitchell and Doug Shepherd of Desperate for Haggis, readings from local authors including Bob Currie, Jim McLean, and Greg Simison.  There will be book baskets to give away and, for that evening only, a 20% discount on books*.  The remainder of the week, April 22 - 26, we are offering a 15% discount*.

Post Horizon Booksellers is Moose Jaw's only bookstore, and we still have it!  As well as our collections of over 22,000 select second-hand books, remember we also offer new books through McNally-Robinson in Saskatoon.   So whatever you would like to read - new and used -  we can keep you turning pages.

With kind regards,

Nelson EH Reid
