Time Out Bookstore

Established in 1988, in the heart of Auckland’s historic Mt Eden Village, Time Out Bookstore is renowned for its excellent and eclectic books, occasionally weird window displays, haven-like children’s book room, and in-store cat.
Owner/manager Wendy Tighe-Umbers, manager Jenna Todd, and a number of bibliophilic helpers – assisted by Lucinda the Tonkinese – will answer your questions, recommend their favourite books, and order for you any title that is not already on their shelves.

Not only helpful – Time Out is also award-winning – in 2016 and 2017 they were Bookstore of the Year in the Booksellers NZ Book Industry Awards. They have won Best Large Retailer at the Albert-Eden Business Awards three years in a row, and in 2017 were one of three bookstores shortlisted for the London Book Fair’s Bookstore of the Year.

Time Out Bookstore’s opening hours are from 9am to 9pm seven days a week – New Zealand’s original open late bookstore.
