Magers and Quinn is an independently owned new and used bookseller located in the heart of the popular Uptown neighborhood in Minneapolis, near the chain of lakes for which the city is famous.
Our location in Uptown has been in operation since 1994, when Denny Magers moved his smaller bookstore, All Books, from its location near the University of Minnesota to Hennepin Avenue and gave the store its current name. From rather humble beginnings (some of us can still remember when many of our books were laid out on tables instead of bookshelves) the store has steadily grown. Thanks to the support of the book-loving Twin Cities community, and supporters from across the globe, Magers & Quinn is one of the largest independent bookstores in the Midwest.
For over 25 years Magers & Quinn has been sharing our love of books and reading with a passion to contribute to a livable community in which books play an important part. We are a function of our great Twin Cities community of readers, and a welcoming place for travelers.
Our in-store collection covers all subjects and features many unusual and hard-to-find editions, as well as thousands of current releases. Titles currently in print, whether new or used, are substantially discounted. Our online store features all our in store items, in addition to over a million other titles available for online purchase.
Whether you shop at Magers & Quinn in person, over the phone, or online, know that you are being assisted by a team of real live booksellers! Our staff is made up of new and lifelong booksellers; of students, teachers, writers, musicians, artists, athletes, gamers, cooks, parents (of people and of pets), community leaders, and more. What our booksellers all have in common is a deep love of books and reading, and sharing that love with our customers. We are lucky to serve the Twin Cities community and beyond, and we welcome your visit!
