Dymocks opens new store in Perth

Australian bookseller Dymocks has unveiled a sleek new store in Western Australia’s Midland Gate Shopping Centre, which puts a modern spin on the nearly hundred-year-old company’s offering.

The store features sleek bookshelves, a modern light-filled interior and an extensive range of both book and non-book products including designer stationery, office and lifestyle accessories.

It also contains digital display screens and signage which can be updated immediately.

About 20 per cent of the store’s floor space will be used for non-book products, with a strong emphasis on gifting, cards, wrap and stationery. High-end stationery brands include Moleskine and Lamy.

Dymocks regional business development manager Frank Pangalidis said the store’s contemporary look will be a valuable asset.

“The store looks fantastic and will become a destination zone for Midland book lovers,” Pangalidis said.

“It’s designed as a vibrant, welcoming space for customers to mingle and browse the shelves. Dymocks is constantly evolving its store design to keep pace with today’s customer.”

The Midland Gate store is the first to open in a new location in Western Australia in five years. It is one of two company stores in the state, with the other nine stores locally owned and operated by franchisees.

According to Pangalidis, the future of book selling in Australia is extremely positive and he looks forward to welcoming a new generation of customers to their store.
