Florey's is an independent bookstore and has been a Pacifica favorite for more than 30 years. Run by the grandson of the late Mary Florey, the store is small but its selection is varied and the staff is always happy to special-order books. You can find the latest releases in fiction and non-fiction or browse the children's area, which includes learning materials. Used books are in the back, and there's usually a rack of discounted books on the sidewalk. Florey's regularly holds author events and poetry readings and is very open to hosting classes, seminars, group meetings, book clubs and the like.
