Bronze Winner John W. Doull, Bookseller

The importance of a good bedtime story is not lost on Woozles’ co-manager Lisa Doucet. “We have generations of fans. Grandparents who brought their kids and now their grandkids come here. We have a unique class of regulars who live all over the world but always come to Woozles when they come home to Halifax. We hold a place in people’s hearts and remain a part of their lives,” she says. Doucet adds that a passion for sharing stories and a joy derived from their work is what sets the folks at Woozles apart. Oh, and the legacy of being Canada’s oldest children’s book store makes for a juicy cherry on top.
