    BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

    Inkwell is moving to Brunswick Street

    We are thrilled to announce that this Spring, we're moving 500 metres north to a brand new retail location at 2011 Brunswick Street!

    Our new location will offer an accessible entrance at street level, consistent temperature controls (our paper products will be so happy!) and lots of natural light with large floor to ceiling windows!

    After nearly 6 years on Market Street, we'll be joining 2 Crows Brewing and Roll it Up Sushi in the Brunswick Heights area between Duke & Cogswell. (We’ve been told a few more new businesses will be announced soon too!)

    The new location is handy to access when walking from the North End to Downtown Halifax! There is a bike lane right outside the shop, many bus routes nearby and more than double the on street parking of our current location!
