It was hailed as the successor to Vancouver institution Duthie Books when it opened last year but now Ardea Books is following in its predecessor’s footsteps. Ardea Books at 2025 West 4th is scheduled to close its doors on Saturday, May 14th.
Ardea’s manager and co-owner, Ria Bleumer, managed Duthie’s for 16 years until its closure in February 2010 and opened Ardea Books (originally named Sitka Books) in September 2010 in the former Book Warehouse location.
Ardea Books is holding a blowout sale with all stock at 40% off until the end of the week.
