Hot on the heels of Kobo’s price drop on the Arc, I was at my local Indigo (a major Canadian bookstore chain) this afternoon to find the bargain books section shrunken, the fitness books crammed in with them, and in what used to be the large-ish lifestyle section where those books were before, a huge walled-off section bearing this message:

Hmmm. I wonder if Indigo’s impending press event is about more than just a refresh on the Arc? Clearly, Indigo intends to build a grander home for their Kobo kiosk behind that wall…

Stay tuned! We’ll post an update as soon as we learn more.


  1. Someone at the Brampton Indigo told me that “more life-enriching” products are coming soon. Very vague. But there were rumours that they would start to carry some Apple products. This could be that rollout?
