Now a trip down memory lane, here is the beautifully illustrated Hyland's Bookshop, when it was once located on Flinders Street, opposite Banana Alley. Do you remember this shopfront?

Did you see us in the Herald Sun last week? For those of you who did not catch it, here it is! What an honour it was for us to be included in the newspaper, with our story for all to read. Thank you Herald Sun. (Click to enlarge)

See you soon,

Big News at Hyland's Bookshop

To all our loyal customers, and there have been many over the years. You may know of our current 40% off reduction sale.
Our current lease is due to expire very soon and we have decided not to renew it at our premises in the old cinema complex
at 200 Bourke St.

But here is the BIG news…
After many meetings and consultations we have decided to RETIRE!

Yes Hyland’s Bookshop, after 54 years of selling Military, Aviation, Naval & Transport History will be closing its doors mid year!!!

So to farewell all of you we will continue to run our current sale but this will now increase to 50% off all publications except for 2019 published books, and those that are on consignment. We will also be opening to doors to our storeroom which holds many gems, also 50% off. So come in and grab some great bargains and help us reduce our stock before our doors close for the final time.

As we are closing mid year we can't stress enough that this will be the very last time you will be able to get your hands on the extremely varied collection that makes up Hyland's Bookshop.

If solid pine bookcases in good condition take your interest then we are prepared to offer these individually at $50 each. So come in and choose what you want or reserve one.

Some new stock will continue to arrive like Osprey titles until it is time to wrap things up.  

If you would be interested in taking on a bookshop – then come in and we will be open to any discussion!

See you soon,
Neil, Helen and the Team
