About US

Come and enjoy a brand new type of boutique bookstore - a place where imagination is welcomed and the smiles are free.  With the hottest new release book titles, top partners including Etsy and Papyrus, fresh Rooftop Coffee Roasters coffee and soon-to-be licensed cafe in a beautiful atmosphere that is open late, noon to 9pm daily, we are the place to be for reconnecting and relaxing... bookworm style.

    Paper and Cup is owned by Brandi O'Neill who moved to Kimberley over five years ago with her two children from Calgary, AB to pursue a happier, outdoor lifestyle.  Brandi has been a self-proclaimed "book worm" her entire life and is excited to be bringing her past business experience into her own retail shop.  She recognized a need in the Kimberley area for a store that could be used as a community hub for events, product promotions, social gathering, studying and more.  She also knew the store needed to stay open late, offer free, fast Wifi and include everyone from high school students, new moms and tourists enjoying an after-dinner cappuccino.


  A fantastic group of humans - our Bookstore Baristas were handpicked for their knowledge, compassion and good natured attitudes!  They are available to recommend a new title, talk about their favourite read, make you a cup of coffee and help you with anything you need to have the best customer experience!  We believe that every staff member brings a valuable story to Paper and Cup and they are all empowered to make the right decision, in all customer service interactions, no manager approval necessary.
