Mag Nation

If magazines are your thing then Mag Nation is where you should be heading to get your fix. Best described as a newsagent on steroids you can find over 4000 titles in this three storey shop in the heart of Melbourne. From niche to mainstream this place has a magazine to suit even the most eclectic taste.

But wait, there's more. Mag Nation is so much more than just a magazine shop. You, the general public, are actually encouraged to stay as long as you want and browse the mags for sale. Yes! That's right. A sprinkling of couches and nooks to take the weight off while you peruse the offerings is proof of this. You will not be frowned upon if you grab a magazine and curl up in the nearest recliner. Add to that free wifi, a coffee bar, irresistible stationary and you could easily lose half a day here. Make that a whole day. Especially one of those rainy-nothing-else-to-do kinda days.

Next time you're in Melbourne make sure this little gem packed full of glossies in on your must do list!

  1. Just the sort of store I love.
    Q:- How long have they been in business?

    I hope they are getting enough business to help the business thrive as its getting harder and harder to find a wide variety of magazines.

    Q:- Has anyone reviewed their coffee?

    1. Mag Nation has been at this location for many many years and also has a store in Prahran and a mini store in Fitzroy. As they also have magazine subscriptions available from their website I imagine they will be around for many more years to come. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the coffee as I haven't tried it. Maybe next time I'm in the area!

  2. I love to read good stuff and I must say this is really a great write up... I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!
