NEARLY NEW BOOKS, Incorporated has been Comox's used bookstore since 1996. First located in the Comox Mall, it was started by Vic and Jean McFadden who relocated the business across the street in 2004. It was purchased by Diane and Dan Kyle in 2008, who have since moved the store again to its present location on the corner of Port Augusta in 2014. Vic and Jean moved back to Red Deer, Alberta, where they also run another Nearly New Books with their daughter. The Kyle's daughter, Madeline, who is presently a university student, first started working in the bookstore at 12 years old and currently spends her summers there.
Nearly New Books has an inventory of upwards of 25,000+ titles just on the shelves, and many more thousands in storage. The collection comprises anything that is in print, both fiction and non-fiction, hardcovers and paperbacks. Every category you can imagine is in the store: science fiction, mystery, children's books, romance, history, biography, art, health & fitness, true adventure, crime, religion and christian fiction, new age, and on and on......
While our books are "nearly" new, often we get many recent releases as well and you can find book club selections and trade papers.
The best thing about our "used" book store is that we usually sell our books at half the new price. But wait! We also take in books and offer a credit that can be used for half the purchase total as well. Please see us to have the trading policy explained further.
Our hours are normally Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and some Sundays (call first) in the summer and near Christmas, as well as occasional holiday hours.
We are located directly across from the Comox Mall in downtown Comox at 1761 - B Comox Avenue, on the corner of Port Augusta.
We can also be reached by phone, (250) 339-1278, but the preferred method of contact is by e-mail ( or message) where you may leave us a list of books that you are looking for. The e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you soon and assisting you in finding the books you wish to read or give as gifts - and yes, we also have Gift Certificates! Payment may be made in cash, or by Interac, Visa, Master Card, and American Express.
