Longtime Victoria bookseller hands business to staff
July 10, 2014
Jim Munro of Munro's Books in Victoria decided, at 85, that it was time for him to go. So he gave the business to four staff members.

What do you do when you’re 84 and own Canada’s most beautiful bookstore? And one that is thriving — no mean feat these days.

Sell it? You could. Close it? You could do that, too.

But if you’re Jim Munro, who for 50 years has run Munro’s Books in Victoria, B. C., you do something exceptional: you give the business to four of your staff.
