Frequently Asked Questions:
(Remember, the only silly question is the one you didn't ask...)
Why are you so far north?
There's LOTS of 'north' left, north of here. We are still two hours drive south of the 49th parallel that divides most of Canada and the USA. This has been the Highway Book Shop's home from the very beginning in 1957. We like it here. It's beautiful all year round. There's room to breathe, lots of room to park. And we come from the area. This link will take to a map and directions to the Book Shop.
Does this affect my shipping?
Shipping is averaged out across Canada and to the United States. International orders are always more expensive for shipping because of the sheer distance and time involved.
Do I need an appointment for special research requests?
It would be nice to know you're coming. It also might give us a chance to think about the sections of books that might have the information you're looking for.
Do you take credit cards?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express as well as debit cards (Interac).
Do you have a coffee shop?
No, because there are too many books that could be damaged. We have room at the picnic tables outside in the summer for you to have a cup of coffee. There's a 24 hour truck stop just a couple minutes north of us on the other side of the highway.
Can I park my RV there overnight?
During the day there is no problem stopping here, but we are not set up as a campground. We have plenty to do taking care of all these books.
