Magazine lovers and media junkies will revel in the rows of shelves stacked with glossy periodicals of every variety in this Kitsilano magazine store. The store offers a good selection of local and international rags and newspapers. Fashion, media, electronics, sports, nature, politics, design, arts, home and garden, crafts, and dozens of other subjects can be found. If you have trouble locating what you need, ask the owner and he'll give you the low-down.
Great magazine store. Great selection and great music and atmosphere. Can't understand how ignorant some people are as they come in and think they can "steal" info from a mag and think that is OK. Don't be such CHEAP a..holes and buy the mag. People like you are the reason why small businesses have to close. If you want to STEAL info from a mag go to Chapters.. they can afford it. Recommend this place highly.
I frequently buy magazines at this store (and have so for years) mainly due to the large selection. I can't say I'll ever go back after my most recent experience. I was viewing different areas of the store as I have diverse interests, deciding on what I wanted to purchase. The guy (short chubby red haired guy with glasses) behind the counter started yelling saying that I had been there too long without purchasing anything. I told him that I had every intent to buy something but he felt that if I didn't in a very short period of time I should get "the hell out". It got to the point where I felt like I wanted to level the guy as not only was he borderline abusive and ignorant, but I felt that it was absolutely ludicrous that something like this could happen in any kind of store anywhere. This is absolutely the antithesis of customer service and respect and was hard for me to stomach given my background as an executive in a large customer-focused organization.
I ended up purchasing my magazine but gave him a bit of a "tune up" upon leaving. I will reach out for the owner as it appears it is not him and recommend they move this loser on.
Based on this experience, I would say take your business elsewhere! It sounds like others have had similar experiences.
This store just lost our business. Despite a distinct lack of 'no texting' signs, I was severely reprimanded/accused of stealing information today because the owner thought I was writing something into my phone or perhaps taking a photo of a magazine page. I suspect this can be a concern, but I was only texting. When he yelled at me a few times from across the store - after creepily accusing me next to my ear - I asked him if it was illegal to text in his store. He said I wasn't doing 'that', and it 'looked' like I was stealing information?!?! After we explained that that wasn't what was going on, that we frequent this place often, spending money every time - I had actually already bought a magazine today - he offered no apology and asked me to leave the store. Please note that we never yelled back at him!! Weirdo. Must be losing it...
Great selection, very helpful and personable staff and great music. Recommend this store to anyone that is a magazine junkie. Great variety of Magazine from all over. Lots of British mags and quite a few high end fashion magazines.
