About Readings Emporium

Designed by the talented team at Kerstin Thompson Architects, our Emporium shop is a beautiful light-filled space over looking Little Bourke St, complete with beautiful heritage windows and plenty of seating to contemplate and read. You’ll find the shop on level one near the footbridge to Myer.


During trading hours, the front door is always open and the shop is accessible for people whose mobility is impaired and wheelchair users. Clear signage can be found throughout the shop, and there is enough space for a wheelchair to be manoeuvred the length of the store.

If you have any difficulties moving around the shop, encounter hard-to-reach titles, or require a pen and paper to communicate, staff members are always on hand to help.

If you have any specific questions regarding accessibility, please contact the shop directly.
