I LOVE this book store. It has an amazingly diverse range of books with some very hard to find titles. The staff are generally friendly and approachable but on occassion I have encountered some who are a bit snotty and intimidating.
The layout of this store is fairly difficult to navigate and some of the books are very low to the ground which makes it less accessible to some members of the community (e.g. those with mobility issues or older people who can not stoop down) - I can not kneel so I end up sitting on the ground to browse the lower shelf. This shop could do with a few more chairs to sit and browse at, it's sad that book shops do not supply as many seats as the used to. In saying that Unity books supplies far more than the chain book stores around.
In addition to the books Unity offers events such as readings and signings, a newsletter, and a fantastic selection of cards. This is the ideal place to fritter away an hour or two browsing. Don't miss the sale bin just outside the store either!
Excellent bookstore, carries a lot of titles that one wouldn't be able to find in a chain bookstore, which is nice. A bit chaotically-organised, and the staff can be a bit stand-offish, but all in all a really nice store to while away an hour browsing.
Can honestly say this is the best bookshop in the country. A hidden gem that Wellington is very lucky to have. Great staff, great range, wonderful atmosphere, and I'm yet to find a title they didn't have in stock which they weren't able to order for me.
Great bookstore, has a good selection of titles and the store is well organized for viewing books in categorizes. Can spend ages in the store picking books as lots of interesting titles, it's a book lover heaven. Friendly and helpful staff.
Another great find for book lovers, this store had a lovely layout that allows you to easily browse the books and find all that you could ever need, the store wasn't busy and it has a nice quiet nature to it which is very calming, the staff were friendly and helpful, plus the prices are affordable, have had to go back a couple of times whilst in the area as it is just that good. Would recommend.
My absolute favourite book store in Wellington! I've purchased (and wanted to purchase) so many books here it's not funny. Many have been NZ biography or Maori related books of which there is plenty of variety. I like the way they categorise and the quirky gifts you can purchase.
