Kidsbooks Kitsilano moving to a new location



Our special neighbourhood children’s bookstore Kidsbooks is moving locations. Not to worry though, they’re just heading four blocks east from Balaclava Street and West Broadway  to Trafalgar and Broadway. The move is a result of planned building demolition for their current space. The new space will be larger and feature free underground parking. The move is set to take place “in early 2016.”

More about Kidsbooks: Kidsbooks first opened on West 4th Avenue in 1983 during a recession. It moved to West Broadway in 1987. In 1995 they  opened a second location at Edgemont Village in North Van. Kidsbooks is known for being the first store in Canada to sell J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter book series in 1998. Of course they had the window displays to match. It’s also Vancouver’s favourite children’s bookstore.

  1. I am sad to see that the charm of West Broadway will soon disappear forever to be replaced by condos bought by people who want to enjoy the charm of the neighbourhood they are destroying….
