‪Near Fishhook‬
أغسطس 2021
‪One of our favorite things to do after going out for dinner is visiting a bookstore. We ate at Fishhook nearby and came here afterwards. It is an attractive store with two floors and a large collection. You could easily spend an hour plus here.‬

‪I miss the old store...‬
مارس 2021
‪I've been going to Russell Books for years. For a long time, Russell Books was an oasis for me, and perusing the packed shelves, looking through the stacks on the floor, meandering down the endless aisles of wooden shelving...all of it was a joy. Trade value given for used books about a decade ago or so was pretty fair in my view, and it was fun to trade with the store. I miss those days.
Unfortunately, over time (as with all things, really), Russell Books changed. In my view, and I say it with a heavy heart, it has lost much of its heart and its quaint appeal. The new store, while impressive on many counts, still ends up feeling more like a Chapters than the wonderful maze of literary treasures it used to be. Though the store itself is larger, the selection seems to have gone down; presumably, this probably has something to do with the endlessly omnipresent nature of the effects of the Covid pandemic, and its subsequent effects on book trading, etc. That said, many of the books seem to be simply overstock rather than old treasures, and the chance of coming across a really unique copy of a book seems less and less.
When trading was still allowed, trade value had seemingly gone down...way, way down. So much so, in fact, that I stopped trading in altogether, by and large.
Regardless, I really feel disheartened over the place. It used to be a treasure trove, a place to surprise oneself by finding hidden gems, a place where one could really dig in their search for a title. Now, it feels so Chapters-like that little differentiates it for me anymore from a regular bookstore (though, thankfully, it is not like Indigo!!).
Still, Russell Books is an amazing store to visit if you love books, and it is (as far as I know) one of the largest of its type. It's a place for book lovers, through and through. It just seems to have lost some of its heart and its classical appeal. Perhaps this is simply indicative of the times, perhaps its just a simple case of expansion and progress. That said, I'll always miss Russell Books the way it used to be. Nothing could compare to it, and nothing (not even the new store as it is now) will probably ever compare to it.‬

Hello Jessipher, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We really value input from our community and that is why we worked so hard to find a space that is larger and provides accessibility for everyone. Although many of us miss the quaint narrow aisles, stacks of books lining the floors, the creaky staircases, and books piled to the ceilings, we got complaints every single day about the old store from customers and staff alike. We are trying to maintain the same values and traditions that Russell Books was built on 60 years ago by my Grandfather and we are working hard on improving every aspect of our business to help it stay viable for the next 60 years and beyond. We hope you will visit us again once the pandemic is over and we have all of our hardworking staff back with us and are able to present you with everything you need to give us a five star review once again. Our new store is bright and airy and clean and almost twice the size of the old store. It allows the elderly and those in a wheelchair or in a baby carriage access to all of it thanks to the elevator and escalators. It might surprise you to know every section has either the same or greater representation in our new location. We have widened the aisles and now have a 10,000 sq foot warehouse nearby keeping our extra stock off the floor and easily findable thanks to our completely computerised inventory.

‪Great used and new books - plus collectables and Folio Society books‬
أغسطس 2020
‪A local said Russell Books was his favourite book store in Victoria. As lover of books, my travelling companion and I had plans to go to Munro's (which we did) but we also made sure to visit here. It didn't disappoint! Russell Books have a nice collection of collectables and used books, as well as new ones. They're all shelved together, so there's a great chance the book you find might well be used and reasonably priced (which is what happened to both of us on our visit). We spent a lovely amount of time browsing and came away with some great finds - and collectables. Highly recommend coming here and it's become top of our list for books in Victoria.‬

‪What a great find‬
يوليو 2020
‪This is a great find in Victoria. During our one week visit to Victoria we visited this store twice and bought five books in total, I wish i could buy more. I think the books are used hence the price but they are pretty new condition. The books have reviews at the back as to whether it was highly rated or an average read.

The selection was awesome and the staffs knowledgable. The only draw back is most books were fairly “old”, not in the condition but the published dates so if you are looking for latest or more up to date books then may not be such a great choice.

Plan to visit again.‬

Hi there! Thank you for the kind review! The listing on the sticker with, for example, "very good" is referring to the condition of our used books and is not a review of the books themselves. A new book on the other hand would say "new" on the sticker! I hope this clears up any confusion. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit! Travel safely.

‪New store is a knockout!‬
ديسمبر 2019
‪Been going to Russell's for years and always enjoyed its quirky fractured character (i.e., different floors, different doors, challenging stacks). Just checked out their new store and it's so impressive and spacious, plus barrier-free. Great staff, as always.‬
