Almost the only place to buy books in Pakuranga. Being a cheap skate I prefer second hand book shops due to the price of books here.

Compared to the former Whitcoulls that was in Botany this just doesn't measure up. Lacks the range and variety of the former store.

Te
Review №36

The new premises reflect the new market for book sales in competition with on-line business. The selection of adult and children's literature is comprehensive. Their products in puzzles, greeting cards and stationery are good too. Many of us are very happy to see the return of a full size Whitcoulls outlet in Botany after the Mall renovations

Great book store, had the books I was after and the staff are real cool and friendly. If your ever looking to buy book or stationary would totally recommend going to Whitcoulls botany and picking up a bargain. Plus they have a 35,000 piece puzzle they you could get and see how long it takes to do.

Review №69

Located in the heart of Botany Town Centre andnestled between the eateries and the town 'square'. Whitcoulls is in the ideal location. Close to car parks and the food hall it is easy to find and you wont be disappointed. This store has two levels with the upper level dedicated to the children. The store has focused on providing an excellent selection and experiance for the young one of the best childrens design and atmosphere to be seen. The lower level compliments upstairs and provides an unparralled selection of books, magazines, cards and gifts for the young adult and older. The staff are friendly, helpful and courteous.A lot of businesses could learn from this store.
