It is wonderful to visit a spacious, well stocked, independent book store. They also carry greeting cards and gift items. Helpful staff.

Well organized and a good selection. The cashier with the nose ring and multiple finger rings should lose her attitude. She shelves these books didn’t write them. I asked if a certain magazine was Canadian or American....”it’s British “ tersely as if I should’ve known ....so why would I asked?

Will shop again there but really, After the isolation period please be more appreciative of money being spent in a store that charged $15.00 more for Erik Larsons biography of Churchill that I purchased yesterday at Chapters.

We did spend $45.00 in the store. We were the only customers. Ellen of Frankford

This is an excellent independent bookstore. They have a wide selection of books available and include some local items as well. They also have a good selection of jigsaw puzzles and a basic selection of toys and games. Their children's section is well stocked and should be looked at if you are getting a book for grandchildren, children, nieces, nephews, etc. There is a small café attached to the store that serves coffee, pop and light snacks. The staff is helpful. My only suggestion would be to have a list of staff picks or recommendations display.

This place has a very good selection of books and gifts, nice spots to sit and a coffee place besides it.
Kids loved to look around on a rainy afternoon. Did not get a chance to have coffee but will try it next time.

This is a classic book store like the ones that existed before Amazon! They have a great selection of books, magazines, puzzles, plus special sections of indigenous literature, Canadian fiction and new non-fiction.

This is a pleasant bookstore but it would be even better if they had some "recommendations" like other similar places. Maybe the staff could make some notes next to books that they recommend like you often see in independent book shops. I couldn't see anyone to ask for recommendations.

Very friendly service and lots of eclectic books and gifts for any occasion. Strong supporters of the County and well worth a browse. Just don't believe the resident cat if she tells you it's OK for her to go outside! Also, as a sidebar, the only RBC ATM in town.

We dropped by Books & Company on a recent visit to Picton.

Books & Company is an independent bookstore located in beautiful right on Main Street.

We were surprised to see used books in addition to new releases. They also feature games, toys, puzzles, stationery, cards, music, and magazines.

Be sure to check out Miss Lily's Café right next door.
