Back Pages to close

Michael Norris calls it a day after more than three decades in books

Back Pages (1526 Queen Street, 423-4750), the stalwart used bookstore on Queen Street near Spring Garden Road, is closing. Owner Michael Norris says he has to vacate by the end of February as the building is being sold. As to the reasons for the closing of the business, he says they are manifold. "I could whine about and say it's this and that," he says. "But I'm just happy I got 32 good years." The closing sale is on now, with 50 percent off everything in the store, a discount that will likely increase as time goes on. Though Norris has ceased selling books online, he has plenty of inventory in the store, quality and rare books. "I'm still bringing down fresh material [from storage] every day," he says.
