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.

Munro's is one of the last independent book stores in Canada. The staff are very knowledgeable and accommodating when requests are asked. There is a book for every connoisseur of books. It is right next to Murchies the tea and coffee shop.
