Cool Chess Canada is Closing!

Due to the impact of COVID-19 and the continued difficulty that the pandemic has put on our business operations, we have decided it's time to close Cool Chess Canada.

Cool Chess Canada opened its doors in June of 2011 and has been a roaring success for us and for our loyal customer base. We started a small website with a point-and-shoot camera and never imagined it would be such a success. 

We feel privileged to have served so many wonderful and supportive customers both in Canada and also the United States. We've worked with schools, charities and individuals to bring our love of chess to the World.

We have established wonderful relationships with vendors from India, Poland, Spain, Taiwan and China and it's been amazing to bring their products to North America.

Alas, good things sometimes come to and end and that end has appeared for us.

We hope that you enjoy our Closing Down Sale and find a bargain for yourself. Over the course of the pandemic we have found it hard to re-stock products, so what you see is what we have got. We won't be re-stocking.

As always we promise to send out only the best products to you. We check every item before it goes out the door. We hope you will take advantage of our final sale.

All items in your shopping cart will receive an automatic 30% discount during checkout, excluding gift cards and scratch and dent items, which are already heavily discounted. We also won't be able to offer free shipping on sale items.


You will still be able to see us around, as all of our energy will now be put toward growing our sister website, Knight's Writing Company.

Knight's Writing Company has surpassed Cool Chess Canada in many ways since it was founded in 2015 and has proven to be more resilient with regard to the pandemic.

We have decided to lean down operations and drive forward with Knight's from now on. Do come and visit us!
