The Nanaimo Wellington branch is moving to a new location in the Country Club Centre! The current Nanaimo Wellington branch location at 3032 Barons Road is now permanently closed. Visit us at our new location when we reopen early-to-mid May 2017.
About the branch
The Nanaimo Wellington branch opened in 1979. In 2017, the branch is scheduled to move to a new location in Country Club Centre to better serve our central Nanaimo customers.
Until the new branch opens, Nanaimo Wellington customers can pick up their holds at the Nanaimo North branch. If customers would like to make alternate holds pick-up arrangements, please talk to any staff at a branch.
