Audreys BooksMarket forces continue to exert extraordinary pressures upon independent bookstores. In 2013, the Canadian Booksellers Association estimated that 300 bookstores had closed in Canada in the last decade, leaving about 1,500 outlets in the country including these independent bookstores in Alberta that are coming up with interesting and innovative ways to survive. The ambience, selection and customer service offered by these independent bookstores are second to none.
