Gerry’s Books to become Village Books & Coffee House

Ron and Angela Hill, who run Gerry’s Books in Steveston, are packing their bags and both relocating their used books store, and renaming it too. After 24 years at their current location on First Avenue, the couple are moving two doors down, where they’ll again be offering used books, but also new books, e-books and coffee too at Village Books & Coffee House.  - Martin van den Hemel photo

Gerry’s Books has been keeping avid readers happy in Steveston since 1988, but owners Ron and Angela Hill felt it was time to make some changes after nearly a quarter century in business.

In the coming weeks, they’ll be packing up their 50,000 books, and relocating.

But don’t worry; they’re only moving two doors down from their current location at 12031 First Ave., a half block north of Moncton Street.

The new store figures to be bigger and holds the promise of having more to offer.

“Hopefully it becomes a hot spot in Steveston,” Angela Hill said of the new store, to be renamed Village Books & Coffee House.

Aside from access to java from Vancouver-based coffee roaster 49th Parallel, there will be new books, e-books and a sitting area for those book worms eager to work their way through their massive collection of used books.

Ron Hill said if all goes according to plan, they’ll be moving into the new digs at 130-12031 First Ave. during the first week of February.

The all-new space will be more spacious, and more family and children friendly.

The store can be reached at 604-272-6601.
