The River Trading Company started in Toronto on July 31, 2010. We were far from ready. Not all the shelves were set up and our debit maching wasn’t installed. But after 4 years, the store transformed into a treasure cove of used books and collectibles.
We came to Hamilton on June 6th, 2015. This used bookstore used to be a cafe, but when we got our hands on it, nobody had been in the building for 8 years. Turning the old eatery into an archive has brought a curious community to our doorstep.
