Check the price online of the next book you buy there. I peomise you it will be one third more than Amazon. They used to sell at over the cover price before Indigo opened.

When did the 10% off card and 30% off stickers come into effect? After Indigo. Before Indigo opened down the street their prices were much higher.

I find the selection and prices to be on par with other major booksellers. The staff go out of their way to help you, and by buying a membership you receive 10 percent off all your new book and item sales, other than magazines and remainders. I find the store to be a terrific place to shop, and yes, they do support local writers, and they do it in a way that other booksellers in the city don't. They also provide weekly entertainment by local musicians and have a wonderful restaurant that isn't the Starbuck's chain. Prices are generally what the books listed price is, often less promotional specials of 30% on new bestsellers, and great prices on remainders. They have a good selection in many genres, including children's, young adults and graphic novels. Overall, it's a wonderful place to shop for books. You feel relaxes and unpressured, unlike some other booksellers.

A great store, and one that I shop at often.

This may be the most over-priced bookstore on earth. The competition from Indigo has brought prices down a bit. Prices are generally at least 1/3 higher than other places. They have done a wonderful job of making people feel they are cultured by spending far too much for the same books available elsewhere. They do not have a particularly impressive collection; they feature standard new releases and best sellers. This store is all style and no substance.

It is amazing how people feel this price-gouging charade is performing some public service to illiterate prairie folk. The owners of this store rake in money in a way that “evil” big corporations like Amazon or Chapters Indigo can only dream of. And you know what? Mcnally is a chain too with stores in other cities.

Anyway, enjoy your smug sense of pretentious purpose while shopping at an over-priced chain store, I’ll keep my money.

P.S.
Before anyone says the prices are because of the support they give local writers, I will add that those promotions cost them nothing. The authors are more than happy to promote their own books. And the extra copies they sell (with the MR 50% markup) are small compared with the extra profit the store makes.
