Type Books named retailer of the year
by Magazines Canada

Type Books storefrontType Books, the boutique store on Queen Street West in Toronto, has been named Magazines Canada Retailer of the Year for 2014. The award is made annually to recognize the importance of good, often independent, stores in building and maintaining the magazine landscape. 
"A neighbourhood bookstore on bustling Queen West across from Trinity Bellwoods Park, Type opened heroically in April, 2006, at a time when few other bookstores were starting up," says Magazines Canada. "The store has been devoted to magazines from a wide array of distributors and publishers direct, and has been committed to Canadian magazines from the beginning."
The store has the distinction of being the location for the 2014 filming of the promotional video Anything Can Happen at a Magazine Stand
