Regent Theatre serves as new epic location for Dymocks Adelaide

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single reader in possession of a good book must be in want of a new bookshop.

Today is the day for all of you little wordsmiths who are well read and would like to visit Adelaide’s new biggest bookstore.

After we were saddened by the news of Dymocks moving from its two story palace, there was some reprieve when it moved to the Myer Centre.

The initial move didn’t completely satisfy our literary appetite considering the move drastically decreased the size of the store, as well as our bookish options.

But the day has finally come, Dymocks Adelaide has finally announced its new and improved location in Rundle Mall.

Taking to their Instagram, Dymocks says that they are “excited to announce that we will be moving into our fantastic new store at Regent Theatre, Level 1 on Wednesday 20th April”.

Dymocks Adelaide will call new-look Regent Theatre home. Australia’s leading bookseller Dymocks will unveil its new flagship Rundle Mall store this month, following a $1.5 million fit out of the historic Regent Theatre.

With nearly 1000sqm of floor space, Dymocks Adelaide will be South Australia’s largest bookstore. The bookshop will occupy the entire first floor above the Regent Arcade shopping precinct.

Dymocks will be honouring the ceiling molding and former theatre furniture by restoring those pieces which include tub chairs, a club lounge and sofa.

The first 100 customers have gone in the draw to win a year’s supply of books, valued at approximately $1750.

The new Dymocks Adelaide will extend beyond books, to include what’s believed to be Rundle Mall’s largest giftware range including bookish gifts, stationery, games, and puzzles.

Dymocks Managing Director Mark Newman said the new store continued the bookseller’s more than 30-year history in Rundle Mall.

“As an iconic Australian brand with a rich history, we’re excited that an equally well-known and much-loved building will be home to our new South Australian flagship” he says.

The Regent Theatre location is now open to buy all your bookish delights.
