Apparently, the McNally Robinson location on 8th Ave. downtown is closing because their building has been sold and will probably be turned into 'Yet Another Condo Building' (YACB) or some lame store front selling overpriced shoes or something. This really really really sucks as they were the best large bookstore in town, and really the only good technical bookstore I have been in since the one on 17th Ave closed. They will not be opening up in Calgary again, so we are back to relying on Chapters and Indigo for all our book needs (which means I will be doing a lot of ordering from Amazon).
So for those who need their technical books ordered, Monday is the last day to do so. Too bad the book I want is set to release next Thursday, because now I can't order it.
