Help Save a Brentwood Bay Icon

The owner is heartbroken. This quaint little book shop has been a part of the Brentwood Bay community for over 30 years, and without significant support, Pages Used Books will be shut down permanently. Little independently-run shops like this are what make villages a magical place, and losing this book store would leave a hole in the fabric of our community. Book stores are still releavant, and with people realizing the perils of increased screen time, the pendulum is swinging back.

This fundraiser is first and foremost about helping the owner, Max, who has fallen on hard times after giving everything to try to save his beloved shop, including his life savings. Once money is raised to help the owner get back on his feet, further donations will be used to help get Pages back up and running. This includes funds for the first few months of rent, as well as buying inventory back (he is currently locked out of the shop). A local businessman has also donated his time to create an online advertising campaign to help Pages increase its customer base and help make it more viable.

I believe the people of Central Saanich care about their village, have the generosity to help a man who is struggling, and see the value in having a used book store. Please make a donation, regardless of size. The owner of Pages, as well as future generations of book lovers, will be eternally grateful.

Pages Used Books--7103 West Saanich Rd., 5A, Brentwood Crossing, Brentwood Bay, BC
