The wonderful People’s Co-op Bookstore on Commercial Drive, the oldest independent bookstore in Vancouver, has been in financial trouble for several years. Now they have issued an emergency request for funding.
They need to raise $15,000 by the end of June, and another $15,000 by December or they will be obliged to close, and we will lose an incredible resource from our neighbourhood.
The good news is that an anonymous donor is going to pitch in $1 for every $2 raised in this appeal.
Please send your donation to the People´s Co-op Bookstore at 1391 Commercial Dr., Vancouver, V6L 3X5 or phone the bookstore (604-253-6442) to make a credit card donation.A donation of $250 gets you a lifetime 10% discount on book purchases at the store.
