As of July 21st. we are now able to fully open and operate the store properly! We still have some re-organizing to do on the main floor of the store to put everything back to rights but we are functional enough to have more people in the store to shop. A freak event on June 6th with a broken watermain outside on the road completely submerged our basement with over 5 ft of water and put us 6 weeks behind in being able to serve you properly.
We will continue to maintain our policy of a ‘locked door’ to reduce the risk to customers and allow them to feel safe while shopping.
Masks are mandatory even if you are vaccinated.
We ask for your patience during this trying time!
Just a reminder…. as we have for now over 94 years, we are here to help you with your educational / office supply / school supply / art supply needs!
And don’t forget those special occasions that need a unique gift!
Current hours – Monday to Saturday: 10:30am to 6pm
You can place your orders by phone, email and through Facebook Messenger or Instagram. Delivery available – call to arrange by credit card.
Our contact info is as follows: Phone: 416-241-5801

Our mission daily is to keep to the original values of our founder, Arthur T. Squibb and then his son Gordon, building on what was created 90 years ago.
Our strengths are: product knowledge, ability to custom order and fair pricing. We are proud to say that we are the oldest bookstore in Toronto and one of the oldest stationery stores in the GTA.
We strongly believe that old fashioned and personal customer service is a lost art and that our clients appreciate what we can do for them.
We stock the following:
- Books for all ages & subjects
- Textbooks & Educational Material – our specialty!
- All grade levels – K to 12, ESL
- Bible & religious/spiritual books
- Unique and fun gift items
- Office/School/Art Supplies
- Our own ‘Squibb’s Organic Honey’
- and much more!
And, if we don’t have it in stock, we would be most pleased to order it in for you! This includes university and college textbooks.
