First time coming to this beloved Victoria institution. Wonderfully laid out books with a vast rotating stock and stationary and home gifts. Great way to kill a couple of hours browsing whilst escaping from the heat

I have favorite bookstores all over the world. Munro's rates very highly for me. The local BC section has many prize winners--some of which I purchased. The selection of cards was also great. I found some good ones for birthdays and sympathy.

Munro's is a delight for book lovers! Expansive selection of authors and genres ... all wrapped up in a lovely location. For those of you, who enjoy a good cuppa while you read, head a couple of doors down to Murchies.

Victoria has a big selection of bookstores, even just in the downtown/waterfront area, and Munro's is, in my opinion, one of the finest. It's not the largest, but when you combine the selection, obviously carefully selected, and the warm, superbly friendly staff, it's a wonderful...More
