Dymocks is passionate about books in everything it does.

As a family owned business and the oldest Australian-owned bookstore, Dymocks prides itself on meeting the leisure, learning and gift needs of all booklovers by offering superior customer service and an enhanced book buying experience.

As the retail environment becomes more impersonal, the opportunity for Dymocks to take the high ground becomes ever greater.

The company constantly introduces innovations and new range of services, setting the standard in bookselling and leading the way in the 21st century with the same enthusiasm and progressive retail approach that has ensured its business success to this day. Strategically, Dymocks is already a leader in growth segments such as digital books.

The origin of the Dymocks flagship store on George Street – Sydney’s greatest bookstore – goes back to 1879 when young William Dymock commenced business as a bookseller in nearby Market Street.

In 1922, the Dymock family purchased the site of the old Royal Hotel in George Street upon which was built the historic, Art Deco landmark Dymocks building, completed in 1930.

As his business grew, William moved to larger and grander premises until, in the 1890s, he had a million books in stock. He died in his thirty-ninth year. Unmarried and childless, he left the business to his sister Marjory, who was married to John Forsyth. From that time onwards, the Forsyth family has managed Dymocks.
