Decline of the (Queen) West

Another Queen West fixture, The River Trading Company is moving to Hamilton in search of cheaper rents. Closing date is June 22. Meanwhile they’re having a 15%-off sale (more if you buy more) and you can find some good stuff. Their queer section is quite small, but they’ve got a great selection of history, art and fiction. I picked up a hardcover copy of Jonathan Lethem’s The Fortress of Solitude for about $7 and I’ll probably go back for more. Unlike industry giants such as Indigo, this place has real personality and it’ll be a sad day when it goes.
