About Chapters Children's Book and Video Store

Indigo Books & Music Inc., a 100% Canadian company, is committed to providing a service-driven, stress-free approach to pleasing and satisfying the booklover.

Indigo was created in 1996 by and for booklovers, and merged with Chapters Inc. in August 2001 to become Canada’s largest books retail chain. Indigo Books & Music Inc. is committed to being your most complete and trusted resource for books, music, gifts and much more.

We said in the very beginning that we wanted to create a true booklovers' haven -- a place to discover books, music and more that might, in the rush of life, have gone undiscovered. A place that reflects the best of a small proprietor-run shop bundled with the selection of a true emporium.


Indigo Books & Music Inc. was created in 1996, and we opened our first store, called Indigo Books Music & more, in Burlington, Ontario on September 4, 1997. By 2000, the chain had expanded to 14 locations across Canada. Indigo was the first book retail chain to add music, gifts and licensed cafes to their distinctive store locations, making shopping a real social event, a leisurely experience that could comfortably and enjoyably stretch over hours.

Chapters Inc. was formed following the merger of Coles and SmithBooks, then Canada’s two largest bookstore chains. In 1994, Canadian General Capital and Pathfinder Capital purchased SmithBooks from Federal Industries, and later that year acquired Coles from Southam Inc. The strategy was to build a strong base company and use its financial strength to invest in the development of large format book superstores.

In April 1995, the merger of SmithBooks and Coles was finalized, and in November 1995, the new company, Chapters Inc. opened its first two book superstores and from there grew to become the largest book retailer in Canada, operating bookstores in all provinces, under the names Chapters, Coles, SmithBooks, and World's Biggest Bookstore.

Chapters is the top retail brand in Canada, ranked No. 1 overall by consumers for four consecutive years (Kubas Major Market Retail Report 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000). In December 1996, Chapters Inc. became a publicly traded company, listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol CHP. Chapters Inc. is included in the TSE’s top 300 companies, well as in the S&P/TSE Canadian SmallCap Index.
