Free Parking Downtown During Sinkhole Construction
The City has announced 2 free hours of parking Downtown at all times of the day; in addition to the regular 2 hours free in the evening and on the weekends. Be sure to take advantage of this and come to our shop, as well as other Downtown businesses, during the daytime hours.
Attic Books and American Prices
Due to the rise of the Canadian dollar, we at Attic Books are now pricing our paperbacks at half of the American price instead of the Canadian. This applies only to the paperbacks that have the American prices listed on the cover. We have not managed to change all of the books, so if you have a book that has not been changed just mention it to before your purchases are rung in.
