Every thriving shopping strip should have a decent, local, independent bookstore, and Oxford St Books fits this profile perfectly. The unobtrusive street frontage reflects the persona of this bookstore, where there is no rush to browse, and certainly no pressure to buy. However given the well picked titles over a variety of genres, it is hard not to make a purchase for that sweet someone. The fiction books are always up to date, and the photography and design sections a stand out. The staff are helpful and the Mintie supply at the counter plentiful. Open late into the evenings every day of the week, it’s an inviting option for your post-dinner stroll.
