About Coastal Bookstore
Port Moody's indie bookshop in Newport Village!
We sell books, puzzles, candles, gifts, local art, and over 30 varieties of artisan chocolate.
We currently offer monthly book subscriptions, in-store book clubs, and writing workshops. There are big plans for more events in the future, from book launches, to poetry readings, to a children's story time.
Our carefully considered collection of new books has an emphasis on Canadian content and diverse representation. All the books we select have great reviews so you know you're picking up a good one, and if we don't stock the book you're looking for, we will happily order it in for you. Email email@example.com for special requests.

Hello! I'm Danica and I founded Coastal Bookstore in 2020.
That's right, 2020. Obviously, nothing went as planned, but somehow the bookstore exists, and I'm tremendously grateful for all the support from loved ones, from the community, and from you!
After almost a year in a temporary pop-up location in Coquitlam, the store moved into our permanent home at 272 Newport Drive in Port Moody BC in December 2021.
Want to help Coastal Bookstore transition from surviving to thriving? Please consider supporting our Patreon with a 'tip' of $3 per month. You will gain access to my personal journal covering the ups and downs and lessons of building this business. Higher tiers of giving come with other perks, like free books!
In summer 2021 I was interviewed by Louanne Midgely at Tell Your Story Videos. Enjoy!
