Rude employees. My partner and I were trying our best to navigate the store, which is difficult due to it being way too overstocked beyond the building code. We walked down one aisle and we were chastised by staff for walking behind the checkout area. If this is so important they should delineate it as such. Didn’t make a purchased due to this unfriendly interaction and the anxiety inducing cramped store.

There are so very many books. Your hardest decision will be finding a bigger bag to fit your choices in...

I could have enjoyed an entire day in this store, but my family wouldn’t let me. Giant used bookstore - super fun if you like books. I bought a stack to read at the beach, including some more obscure literary work.

Floor to ceiling books! We could have spent hours and hours there. 5/5 for selection and overall interest factor, but I’d give it a 4/5 total because I think used books should be less expensive than they are here.

This is truly a hidden gem . We always stock up on books and return our read ones for a credit. So kinda like a revolving door except every time you enter you just top up your account. Huge selection of books. Roz is our favourite employee she always recommends new reads for us. Highly recommended

It is massive, but fairly organized for the size of it. There is everything from books, to dvds and every genre you would want.
