Encore Books and Records – Vintage for value

Both Bookstores and vinyl shops are becoming a dying breed. But for vintage lovers like me, they still hold a treasure trove of discoveries. One place that I like to stop by every so often is Encore Books and Records in the Southwest of Montreal. I’m a repeat customer but was especially in my university days when I had to buy tons of novels for literature classes and couldn’t get what I was looking for in other used bookstores. The staff was always friendly and knowledgeable, often going above and beyond to help me find what I needed. I like the fact that it’s well organized, which isn’t often the case in vintage stores.

At the back of the store, they have a vinyl section which is pretty cool and moderately priced. I’ve seen a few rarities there and they carry both music and books of every genre. The discount bin out front makes it hard to leave without picking up something.
