Meet the owner

Étienne Charbonneau is co-owner of Librairie l’Échange, a family business founded in 1976 and located on Mont-Royal Avenue. It is one of the first used-bookstores in Montreal. Étienne took over the bookstore in 2014. "There have been four owners before me and two locations. It has transformed enormously. My father was one of the founders, I was born in that environment," he recalls.

Étienne grew up with a keen interest in the family business. His sister, who is a co-owner, takes care of the administrative side of things. Étienne says he's passionate about marketing. "I decided to renew the [used bookstore] concept when the opportunity presented itself and come up with new ideas," he says.

    Échange culturel

    Une des places les mieux cotées pour trouver des livres d'art magnifiques, des bandes dessinées ou un cd trop difficile à retrouver ailleurs. La marchandise se renouvelle régulièrement, il n'est donc pas rare de faire des trouvailles à chacune de nos visites!
