The Northshire is one of the locations in Manchester that we always go to. For those of you who are Grandparents, the children's floor is fantastic! There is a small coffee shop in there and an area to sit and relax, plenty of tables too! It is not like the big open chain bookstores, it has lots of cozy little... More

The Northshire Bookstore is a very friendly environment, very enjoyable, and each employee is more than willing to help each costumer find what they are looking for. I went with a couple of friends, and we visited each floor at least three times, and could not get enough of the store.

My favorite bookstore had always been the one on Martha's Vineyard, but that changed when I stepped into Northshire today!! I'm a fiction reader and I honestly have never seen a better selection of books! I love that there are also so many staff recommendations throughout the stacks!!! This could be my number one reason for returning to Manchester!!

This is such a great bookstore for those of us who love to read. We browsed about for an hour and easily could have stayed longer if we didn't need to get on the road. The rambling rooms and nooks and crannies in the store adds to the charm. Staff were helpful and friendly. Readers will love stopping in here... More

This store is a book lover's dream. Browsing here is made all the more enjoyable with the warm atmosphere, charming interior and the selection of literature, gifts and stationery. The store also has a tiny cafe with good coffee and delicious baked goods.
