Big John's Books is Lethbridge's longest running bookstore. We have a big selection of well organized gently used books.
Big John's Books is a book store built by a book reader for book readers. For those who love books this store is about that great feeling you get when you finally find that one book you have been looking for forever. We love spreading that enjoyment to every person who visits our store.
We have been in business for 63 years, the last 13 years as Big John's Books. It was Baxter's Books for the previous 50 years. My aunt, Grace Hing, was owner and operator for 20 of those years.
I got my start in running a bookstore at Baxter's Books learning everything my Aunt had to teach. I started part time in my late teens working my way up to running the store full time when my Aunt fell ill. A year later I bought the store.
And so Big John's Books was born, we have made it our mission to have a well organized store filled with gently used books at great prices.
