About Turning the Tide
Established in 2003 and recently relocated to 615 Main St, Turning the Tide is Saskatoon’s alternative bookstore, offering an excellent selection of fiction, and hand-picked non-fiction books on current events, sustainable living, and generally making the world a better place.
You might not guess it, but we also offer cookbooks, children’s books, graphic novels, and magazines.
If you are a university or career college student, there is a good chance we are the off-campus bookstore your profs send you to for your texts. Book and DVD special orders are available by request.
Come on down and see why the George Strombolopolous Show named us one of "Ten Beloved Bookstores from Coast to Coast."
Support Turning the Tide and help sustain your projects
If you think Turning the Tide is a valuable resource in Saskatoon, there are ways to support it which can also support your event, reading choices, institutional learning resources, and your bottom line. Because we’re small and independent, sometimes people think that we’re not able to do things larger chain bookstores can. But check out these ways that supporting our shop can assist a project you’re doing!
