The Argo is Moving!!

[Sept. 21 update: The current location of the Argo will be closed starting Sunday, September 26th. We will reopen at our new address, 1841A Ste-Catherine West, on Monday, October 4th. See you there!]

Friends of the Argo, we have big news. We're moving!

Over the past couple of years, all of you have been so enthusiastic in your support of the Argo that we've been slowly but surely outgrowing the snug space we currently occupy. So when serious water damage hit at the beginning of the summer, we decided it was time to get the gears turning for a potential move sooner rather than later.

We've found a great location barely half a block from where we currently are - 1841A Ste-Catherine St. West, on the same side of the street and just a bit closer to Concordia. Excitingly, the new location is twice the size of the current one, which will allow us to make room for all of the great new books we want to put on the shelves! Among other things, we'll be expanding the selection in our kids' section, setting up small but lovingly-curated horror, mystery, and romance sections, and getting more books in French. And since we're sticking around in the neighbourhood, things shouldn't be much different for you if you've been ordering books for pickup or delivery, getting your books here for class, or coming by to browse on your lunch break.

We can't wait to welcome you to the new space, but it'll still be a little while until we're set up. We'll be moving some time in late September - in the meantime, business should carry on as usual without interruptions, as we'll still be running the store from the current place while we get the new place painted and ready. We'll likely close for about a week for the move itself; we'll keep you all updated.

Until then, come drop by to check out our moving sale! We're clearing out a lot of stock at 50% off, so who knows what you might find. And of course, we're still always getting new books in the store and taking special orders, and we have online events pretty much every week.

It's a little bittersweet to leave the location we've been in for 52 years, but the Argo has in fact moved before: for the first three years of its existence, the shop was on the other side of Ste. Catherine! Although the space will be new, we're bringing a lot of the Argo with us, and the spirit of the store will continue unchanged. Ships are movable things, after all, and sometimes it's time to weigh anchor.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

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).
