    Before Chapters moved to Whyte, there was Greenwood's Books (plus their kid's store on 80 ave.), Aspen Books, Orlando Books, and even Hub Cigar Store (for magazines...

    There's also a Wee Book Inn, Alhambra, The Bookseller, and Coles closer than that. Not to mention the ones downtown. It's not exactly a book desert.

    I'll be shocked if it's not a Homesense/Winners like virtually all of their other stores. It actually could be great for the residential population of the area, but of course it will take a toll on a...
