The Sentry Box – Calgary, Alberta

With a policy of “If it’s in print, we’ll try to stock it.”, The Sentry Box in Calgary, Alberta puts their 13,000 square feet of retail space to good use.

Known as Canada’s largest adventure gaming and science fiction and fantasy bookstore, The Sentry Box is a gathering place for local game and comic enthusiasts as well as a destination for out-of-towners looking to get their fix of geekery. The bright, open space makes for a welcoming environment; one that plays host to all-ages events and doesn’t relegate tabletop gamers to the dark corners of the space.

The Sentry Box deserves lionization. There are not many stores that successfully combined the variety of countercultures that The Sentry Box has executed so flawlessly. If you’re looking for a new experience with like-minded people, The Sentry Box is the place to go.
