The Book Grocer

From a little store in Sydney Rd Brunswick, The Book Grocer has grown to 6 stores (plus one in the ACT) and is one of Melbourne's favourite book stores for remaindered books.

We are a family-owned business and for the past 10 years we have prided ourselves on sourcing the best and freshest titles at amazingly low prices. We scour the globe for the books which go on our shelves. No dump-bins full of tired old remainders for us. We like to be known as the business which sells remaindered books yet looks like a retail bookstore.

Recently we've begun to stock full retail titles, to provide 'full service' to our loyal customers. If we don't have a book in-store, we might be able to order it in for you.

Libro is the name of the book purchasing, warehousing and logistics arm of the business. Our warehouse holds thousands of titles ready to ship. Our online payment gateway, which guarantees the security of your online purchase with us, is run in the Libro name, so your credit card statement will read "Libro - Better Books Online". All your ordering and shipping enquiries will be directed through Libro, so you may receive an email from us directly, or from a Libro email address if you have any questions about your order.
