New independent bookstore aims to fill gap left by Duthie

A new full-service independent bookstore is set to open in Vancouver, rising from the ashes of Duthie Books, which shut down in February after 52 years serving the reading community.

Ria Bleumer, former manager at Duthie, and business partner Karel Carnohan will be opening Sitka Books & Art Ltd. in August just two blocks from Duthie's last location on West Fourth Avenue.
