We're the largest independently owned and operated off-campus bookstore in Canada. We sell course textbooks for George Brown - St. James, Ryerson University & U of T - St.George students.

We sell the same titles and editions as your campus bookstore at cheaper prices all year-round. Each and every semester, we stock a large selection of new and used textbooks. Since we always sell the same titles and editions as your campus bookstore for less, take advantage of our Lower Price Guarantee. If you find an identical textbook at the campus bookstore priced for less than our discounted price, we'll offer an additional price reduction on all remaining stock.

Conveniently located just a few steps away from your school, we extend our operating hours at the beginning of each term and maintain regular hours throughout the entire year to serve you better.

We'll buy your textbooks if they're on course/in demand for the current term.

Visa, MasterCard, Debit, and Cash accepted. Although the refund/exchange policy varies according to the school we serve, you can be sure that it's identical to the one posted at your school's bookstore.

We are a green company. Our focus is to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We run an efficient operation with the future of the environment in mind by actively reducing the amount of documents printed; using double-sided paper; reusing and recycling our skids, cardboard boxes, packaging material, paper, & old edition textbooks.

215 Victoria St

Buybacks begin on the first day of each semester. It's always best to sell your curriculum-specific textbooks during the first week in order to receive the highest value. If we're unable to buy your textbooks due to low demand or overstock, we may be able to offer a wholesale value. Email your list of textbooks for valuation. In your email, simply write down the author, title, & ISBN.

We pay up to 50% cash for your textbooks. Amount payable is based on the publisher's retail price. For example, a textbook that originally costs $100.00 is worth $50 cash.

Email us for a buyback quote. Write down the author, title, & ISBN. We'll let you know if we can buy your textbooks. Your student photo ID card is required for all cash payouts.

We do not buy computer software, photocopied books, overstocked titles, or old editions unless they're still in demand/on course.
