A downtown Victoria business is hoping to celebrate the opening of its new location in a way that will go down in the books.
Russell Books is shifting from its 734 Fort St. location to across the street at a larger 747 Fort St. location, and the owners want to set a world record in the process.
If moving half-a-million books wasn’t impressive enough, the owners want to set a Guinness world record by constructing the world’s largest tower of Guinness World Record books
Currently, there’s a world record for the largest stack of books in general (144,000 to be exact), the fastest time for a team to stack 20 Guinness World Record Books (16.02 seconds) and the tallest stack of Guinness World Record books built by a team in one minute (1.97 m).
The shop is asking for members of the public to help make the record happen by bringing in a copy of an official Guinness World Record book in exchange for a $5 gift card. Books can be dropped off at the 734 Fort St. location
