Ayerego Books is a quaint bookstore on St Clair Avenue
West; a friendly shop in the Regal Heights Village, just East of Corso Italia. We specialize in social sciences, history, and
biographies, but we also have a wide range of other genres to cater all tastes,
along with a wonderful selection of Canadian fiction and poetry.
Our origin story is quite an adventure. The first store was on the second floor of a
restaurant in a former dentist's office, all the way back in 1995. It was
difficult work installing shelves and books, but we opened for business on the 1stof September. However, a dentist's office is not very suitable for a bookshop! After
a year a better and very spacious location was found in what later became the
"Art & Design" district of Queen St. West. This was our home for
the next 17 years.
In May 2012 the landlord wanted the space for
something else. So it was time to move again. After a few months of re-shelving
thousands of books we opened for business here on St. Clair West in 2012.
From the beginning the idea was to have a prominence
on the Internet. That was a fortuitous decision because online shopping has become
an effective way to reach customers all over the world. Of course we would never be without our loyal
walk-in customers and even after 19 years people still remember us - you can
still see our sign at the Queen St West location!
