Our story.

Back in 1990, we recognized an exciting opportunity for a more accessible, larger-scale secondary market for book returns. We launched a retail business, known today as Book Outlet, and a wholesale division, Book Depot, to get great quality “hurts” out to an audience of book lovers specifically looking for bargain pricing. The Internet was in its early years, and we strategically decided back then to make that channel an integral one. It was a marker of our dedication to innovation, which has been the driving force over the years in remaining responsive and relevant to the needs of our customers.

Gateway North developed as a springboard company, taking Book Depot’s strong IT infrastructure and now extensive facilities to meet the emerging needs of the publishing, retail and manufacturing industries: staying competitive, remaining as lean as possible, reaching the greatest market. We leverage our distribution expertise to provide a viable, efficient means of getting your goods to the Canadian market.
