Indigo Books have been shuttered since early March and they are reopening over 130 bookstores in Canada and the rest will open their doors in phases. If you are looking to buy a new book, it is important to note that Indigo is limiting store capacity to ensure physical distancing, enhancing cleaning protocols, offer hand sanitizer in-store, contactless pay methods and having protective shields at cash registers. Employees will also wear face masks and people are encouraged to do the same when they come in.
For the foreseeable future the only Indigo stores that will be reopened are ones with street entrances, bookstores within malls will be closed. A spokesperson for Indigo Books and Music said the company will keep all of its Quebec locations closed but will provide more information once it has reopening dates to share.
