Duthies | Place | Much has been said about the cultural health of Vancouver – a place that puts jogging the seawall in yoga pants way above, say, going to see live theatre. Duthies Books is a casualty of that imbalance. Founded in 1957, the company flourishing, eventually growing to 8 locations in all. With the arrival of online booksellers and giants like Chapters, however, it slowly languished and died. The last store shuttered in 2010.
