One of Kitsilano’s best book stores is closing.

After 21 years, Pulp Fiction Books on West Broadway is closing, leaving many Vancouver book lovers disheartened. Owner Chris Brayshaw points to reduced foot traffic and an untenable rent increase as the primary reasons.

The bookstore, known for sourcing rare reads and nurturing a community of writers and avid readers, has been a cultural staple.

Long-time customer Kaitlyn Le reminisces about finding literary gems at affordable prices. Brayshaw ensures no job losses, with staff moving to other locations.

Neighboring businesses and customers mourn the loss, recognizing the bookstore’s significant impact on the local literary scene.
