Gold Winner Bookmark
Silver Winner John W. Doull Bookseller
Bronze Winner Woozles Children’s Bookstore
“These people are heroes of humanity,” writes one Best of Halifax voter about Bookmark. “I love them and everything they do. Indie bookstores forever!” Indeed, Bookmark has excelled in keeping a broad range of stock in a relatively small space, and in providing the customer service you just can’t find in the giant chains. Silver-winning used books dealer John W. Doull has just completed the monumental task of moving its entire collection of teetering stacks of books from Barrington Street out to its new roomy location on Main Street in Dartmouth. Meanwhile, bronze-winning children’s bookstore Woozles is celebrating an astounding 32 years in business, old enough that some of its original customers are bringing in grandchildren to shop.
