Black Bond Books
Black Bond Books currently has 12 locations through out the Lower Mainland. With the recent opening of our Ladner store, we welcome third generation, Caitlin Jesson, Madeline's grand daughter, and Mel and Cathy's daughter, as manager. Bookselling seems to be in the family blood! Mel and Cathy Jesson have owned the company since Madeline's retirement. Michael has gone on to develop an online inventory system, utilized by many independent Canadian booksellers, and owns Mosaic Books in Kelowna with his wife, Michelle. Vicky left the company to pursue her passion for sailing, and the challenge of the seas.
Black Bond Books currently has over 100 book lovers on staff, some of whom have been with the company for over 20 years. With Mel as Business Manager, and Cathy shopping North America to find the best book values, they have with the help of their skilled staff, made Black Bond Books what it is today. For 44 years Black Bond Books has grown as a proud independent Canadian bookseller offering fast personal order service with no added costs, and outstanding customer service, whether in person, or online. We hope either experience will show our love of books! Let our staff of avid readers recommend something to lose yourself in!
