Book sale raises money for Rossland’s Seven Summits Centre for Learning

New Edition Café and Books has made a temporary return to help out learners at the Seven Summits Centre for Learning.

After closing its doors earlier this year, New Edition Café and Books has made a temporary return to help out learners at the Seven Summits Centre for Learning.

New Edition still has some stock left over after shutting its doors and owner Paul Evans says it has to go, but he wanted to help out Seven Summits in the process. “My daughter goes to Seven Summits; it would be great to give a little something back. They’re always doing fundraisers and stuff like that,” he says.

Learners from Seven Summits are helping out selling the books, two doors down from New Edition’s former location on Columbia Ave. All of the books will be sold for 50 per cent or less of their price, and half of all proceeds will go to the school.

Evans says the sale also gives the learners a chance to get some on-the-job retail experience. “This gives everyone that little bit of exposure, and they can see for themselves how to deal with customers,” he says.

Evans hopes to wrap the sale up by Oct. 22, and can’t emphasize enough how much he supports Seven Summits.

“It has to stay here, no matter what, and it’s really important that the people in Rossland and the area kind of recognize it and support it,” he said. “The level of student that comes out is just phenomenal,” he added.
