SERVICE UPDATE (COVID-19) | UPDATED JUNE 12, 2020: To ensure the health and safety of our staff and community, the Book Store at Western has closed retail operations for the time being.

WE ARE NOW FULFILLING ONLINE ORDERS FOR DELIVERY ONLY. In-store pickup is not available at this time. For special orders please contact Please note: due to current events, current order processing times are 5-8 business days..

Please note that all couriers are experiencing extremely high volumes of parcels with reduced staff at their processing facilities. They have therefore advised customers to expect delays with their parcel deliveries, and delivery time estimates are not being guaranteed. We estimate delivery in Canada to be up to 14 days. These delays are beyond our control, and we appreciate your patience.
