Proud to be a Poppies Bookshop

Long Story Short is a part of the Poppies Bookshop Group. The philosophy that underpins Poppies approach to bookselling is based on making the customer experience personal and unique, both in terms of the setting and the products on show. That every Poppies store has its own personality is deliberate, each is a personal space for both the owner and their customers with total focus on traditional values of unobtrusive service and providing space for readers to discover great books and share conversations about the books we love.

The original Poppies Remuera store has been an icon for over 35 years and provided the concept for the Poppies Franchise business launched in 2008. In April 2018 this store relocated to Howick Village, so today the stores are located in  Howick, Hamilton, Havelock North and New Plymouth. Long Story Short is the first sub-branded Poppies bookshop and we are proud to work alongside the wider Poppies team of exceptional booksellers.
