An Update from the Argo on Covid-19 (February 24)
To the Argo community:

Thank you for continuing to support us and to be such a vibrant, creative, committed community as we continue to all do our part to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

Having kept careful watch of infection rates over the past weeks, we are happy to say that we currently consider it safe enough to allow customers in the premises again, with the same precautions we had in place in the fall. We therefore welcome you to drop by and enjoy a good browse at your convenience. Please note that we are only allowing customers in the store two at a time, and that masks are mandatory. We have hand sanitizer at the front and encourage you to use it; on our end, we sanitize surfaces regularly and have a plastic screen in place. We also remain more than happy to accomodate you for contactless curbside pickup and for delivery, if these options suit you better.

We still invite you to keep browsing our constantly-updated online catalogue and avail yourselves of our 5$ local delivery (fee waived for orders over 100$). We also have not flagged in our event schedule, bringing you virtual events every Thursday night online, which has allowed us to open them up to guests and attendees from all over the world. We've been hosting an exciting variety of book clubs, poetry nights, author visits, and more; if you want to join in, check the events page on our website, sign up to our mailing list (check the "contact us" page!), or keep an eye on our social media.

And finally, let us thank you once again for all the support you've shown us over the past months. This is a strange and unpredictable time to be an independent bookstore, and between ordering books online, joining events, and telling friends about us, you've all turned up for the Argo in a big way. We can't thank you enough.

- Your staff at the Argo

The Argo Bookshop is located on the unceded lands of the Kanien'kehà:ka people, part of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. The area has long been - and continues to be - a gathering place for many First Peoples, including the Huron/Wendat, Abenaki, and Anishinaabeg. The Argo Bookshop enthusiastically stocks a large selection of books by Indigenous authors and strives to directly support Indigenous organizations in our neighbourhood. We invite you to examine your relationship to the land you occupy and to support Indigenous groups active in your area; for organizations near the Argo, you could check out Native Montreal(an organisation that strives to contribute to the holistic health, cultural strength and success of Indigenous families, individuals, and community living in the greater Montreal area) and Resilience Montreal (a day shelter situated on the corner of Atwater and Sainte Catherine, offering food, a place to sleep, clean clothes, and support to anyone in need).
