Over the last few months, the BWS volunteers have been discussing the need for us to have an accessible venue (this was prompted by feedback from Dorothy Palmer—thanks Dorothy!). While we love being at Full of beans Coffee House & Roastery, we also feel that it’s necessary for us to be at a venue that has an accessible washroom.
We searched the Brockton neighbourhood, but had trouble finding a place that met our requirements. When Glad Day Bookshop opened their new, fully accessible location at 499 Church Street, we approached Michael Erickson (who has been BWS’s bookseller for the last year) to see if they could accommodate us. And so…we’re moving!
We’d like to express our gratitude to Lori Nytko and her staff at Full of beans for their wonderful support over the last few years. We’ll miss the Brockton neighbourhood, where we started 7 years ago, but we are looking forward to this change. Glad Day is a wonderful indie bookstore, bar, coffee shop and event venue. We hope that our community of friends will enjoy it too, and we can’t wait to welcome you on January 11.
