WE ARE HERE FOR YOU: We keep a wide range of excellent books on our shelves just waiting to be taken home and read or given away, and we source books from all over the world for our customers. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are ready to help you in the shop, by telephone or by e-mail.
Our hours: Monday-Friday: 9am - 5:30pm; Saturday: 9am- 4pm; Sunday: 10:30am-2:30pm.
ONLINE PURCHASING: If you ever buy books online, buy them from us and support an independent bookshop. Simply use our cart system to pay by paypal or have us put them aside for you. We send books anywhere in the world (please e-mail us for an international postage-inclusive quote). We can even gift-wrap them. Check with us if you’re not certain if a book is available. When you buy books online from us you benefit from our loyalty scheme (see below).
SPECIAL ORDERS: Just because what you’re after isn’t in our shop or on our website, it doesn’t mean we can’t get it for you (we can! (if it is still in print, that is)) – just ask or e-mail us. YOU CAN BUY ANY BOOK IN THE WORLD FROM YOUR LOCAL INDEPENDENT BOOKSELLER!
E-BOOKS: We sell e-books and Kobo readers. We are happy to get you started. When you register with Kobo here you will be associating all your future downloads with Page & Blackmore even if you use the Kobo website without visiting ours first. We think this is a good idea.
USE OUR LOYALTY SCHEME: Every time you buy a book from us (from the shop or from our website), we can give you 10% of its value towards a future purchase. Just come in (or e-mail us) and register. It is our way of saying thank you for supporting an independent bookshop.
NEWSLETTERS: Sign up for What We Are Reading, our monthly e-newsletter of events, competitions and recommendations from our staff, or browse past issues. We also have a weekly newsletter of new book releases. Sign up or visit the archive here. Our Summer Newsletter, featuring 140 titles, is distributed annually in printed form.
FACEBOOK: Visit our facebook page and ‘like’ us. Keep up with our latest news and scintillating links. Share your views.
COMPETITIONS: We run annual poetry and crafting competitions, and sponsor an annual short story competition run by the NZSA (Top of the South branch).
The PAGE & BLACKMORE READERS & WRITERS festival runs each year as part of the Nelson Arts Festival.
