The Story

Who We Are

Altered Reality is a culmination of years of love and sweat; a unique shop that caters to a variety of interests. Our retail operation still carries previously read books and has the ability to order new. We carry video games... anything from Atari to current as well as obscure accessories from cabling to controllers. DVD and BluRay movies are sold here. The product lines that have taken over the shop is our healing and metaphysical products. This is a lot of fun and gives our shop a terrific vibe!

Our History

Altered Reality started in 1992 as a small used bookstore in Timmins Ontario under the name " The Book Bin ". When we acquired the business in December 2000 we knew we captured a gem. The unique aspect of a used business is that your neighbors have brought the items in for you to find. Our job was to make that process simple. Over the years we have evolved to a 2200 sq ft store of diversification. When you are in the Timmins, Ontario area, all I can suggest is to stop by and enjoy our creation because it all started with you.
