Good little bookstore to grab vouchers, lotto, magazines and cards. They have a limited selection of books compared to other stores (and cannot compete in the online market) but will order in and do have decent sales during holiday periods.
Handy place to magazines, newspaper, lotto and instant kiwis. The book selection is slightly limited but they will order if they have available in their database and it isn't on the shop floor, but they do have most top-selling literature in stock.
Good Whitcoulls shop, but it is a bit on the small side. There is another in town that is larger, which is located on lambton quay. I would venture there first, although this one is more centrally located. Kind staff.
