Dymocks is a unique business. The origin of the flagship store on George Street, arguably one of the world's greatest bookstores, goes back to 1879 when a young and passionate William Dymock first opened his doors.
The rest as they say is history. Today the family-owned business is the leading bookseller in Australia and in 2015 was voted Australian Book Retailer of the Year.
In 1922, the Dymock family purchased the site of the old Royal Hotel on George and the historic, art deco landmark Dymocks building, was built and completed in 1930.
