World's Biggest Bookstore 1980 - 2014

On Sunday, 30 March 2014, Toronto’s landmark World’s Biggest Bookstore closed its doors for the last time. The end of a 34 year era and the passing of one of the last bastions of mid 20th century unabashed business exuberance that dotted the downtown. Thanks for the memories! But despair not all ye 1/87 scale seekers of a good read. The lights are still on, the magazines are all new, and book pages are all deckle edged down at the HO location conveniently situated on Ocean Boulevard near car stop #3 of the Lost Ocean Line. See you at the bargain tables by the escalators!
