Northshire has an enormous amount of books. I am amazed whenever I visit of how much variety this store has. The children’s section is incredible- still the best I’ve ever seen- better than chain bookstores that I have visited.

Such a treat in the age of Amazon. Lots of books, magazines, and interesting items and the staff is always helpful. We usually stop more than once when we're in town.

Just love the variety of books and the children's section with interesting puzzles, games, and so much more! Have always gone to the parent company in Vermont and so happy when this location opened closer to home. Could spend several hours there just perusing!

Great book store! Huge selection, with a second floor devoted just to children's books. Nice layout, friendly personnel. When I was there, they had a book signing by Sean Spicer a.k.a. Mellisa McCarthy's inspiration.

Stopped in here on a recent visit to Saratoga Springs and immediately loved it. Overall, the bookstore felt cozy and homey, but still very organized, and the staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. They have a whole floor of children's and YA books, where I...More

Came in today for 15 minutes to get out of the April freeze and seemed to be dog friendly too. Nice selection of books and gifts and very busy for a Sunday afternoon!

When this location opened, I was not sure what I'd find, knowing the Manchester Vt location so well. How would they handle adding a daughter store in a quaint but busy city when the mother store is located in the quintessential picturesque post-card setting of...More
