Friendly enough staff that were present, willing to help out, but at the same time not hovering over you while you shopped. Wonderful feel to Munro’s, as noted before, it feels a bit like a museum. It’s a heck of s feeling. The prices were reasonable, the selection was solid. A great vibe to support, local over big box! I highly encourage you to try Munro’s while downtown Victoria!

I adore this bookstore. It’s almost like a visual museum from the inside. Older and eclectic books available! My 14 yo daughter could have stayed for hours!!!

Wonderful staff, wonderful store. It is always a treat to visit in person.
Knowledgeable staff and an incredible selection of books. When I am not in Victoria, I do order books by Canadian authors from them.

Lovely bookstore. Lovely historic building. Completes the charming ambiance while walking the historic Victoria area. One of the best bookstores I have ever visited. Enjoy!

There are fewer and fewer classic actual bookstores around, and Victoria should be VERY proud of this one. Gigantic selection of books on the shelves, and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Architecture and vintage fans should go JUST to see the inside, it's splendid! I came out with a couple of good selections, things I haven't been able to find at home. I wish there were a higher rated answer for the questions below, not just yes/no, because I think this would be a stunning place for romantic couples to go: what's better than buying books with the one you love?

I always like to make a visit to Munro's whenever I'm in Victoria. It's set in a beautiful building and always has a good selection of books. I particularly like to enjoy browsing their sale section in the middle of their ground floor, and always find something that looks enticing at a bargain price. If you love books, visit Munro's!

It's in an old Victorian building, high ceilings with sky lights, wooden panelling around the walls and quality wooden floor ... filled with books at every level floor to ceiling. Even if you don't buy a book it is well worth going inside just to see it .. a marvel to the eyes.
