The Gold Rush Bookstore - BC Marketplace

The Gold Rush Bookstore

Independent bookstore selling new, bargain, and used books. Gift items, puzzles, tea and coffee

Located in the West Kootenay mountainous region of British Columbia, Canada lies a skiing mecca–Red Mountain. Rich in history, at the turn of the century the historical town of Rossland was booming with prospectors in search of Gold. The Gold Rush of 1890’s transformed the town into a bustling city. When the gold dried up, so did the town, just leaving the remnants of many buildings in its wake. Those buildings that survived are fortunate to house the eclectic mix of businesses, and the Gold Rush bookstore is one of them.
Independent bookstores; the heart of a community where tourists and locals alike share a passion for books, information and knowledge. The Gold Rush Bookstore is a place to meet, to promote local authors, while showing economic support in our small mountain town community of Rossland. By offering an array of new books from a cross section of best-selling genres, local authors, and books unique to the Kootenays, we will maintain a strong local community presence. For the bargain shoppers, a gently used book collection is available for a discounted price. The Gold Rush Bookstore, a step back in time where time slows down, where you can sip a hot beverage–DAVIDsTEA, coffee or a hot chocolate–not feel rushed, and all the while show your support for our local economy and the many entrepreneurs that call the Mountain Kingdom…home.

I ordered several books from the Gold Rush Bookstore website as a birthday gift for a friend that lives in Rossland. (I live near Vancouver.) It was super easy to select books that were in-stock on the bookstore website, and they even hand-delivered them in a gift bag with tissue paper. Communication was super prompt & friendly, and I appreciated the excellent service as I gifted books to my friend from afar. I also liked that they carry secondhand books (share the love!) - as that meant I could get an even broader range of books (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc) for a reasonable price. Thank you!
