Pricing And Availability

All prices on our website are in New Zealand Dollars (NZ$). All prices are correct at time of publication, but we may alter prices at any time for any reason.

On hand quantities listed on this website reflect the stock on hand at our store; titles with no on hand quantities are not in stock and will need to be obtained from our suppliers. While Bruce McKenzie Booksellers attempts to ensure that prices and availability status listed on this website are correct, prices may vary for reasons beyond our control, for example, for titles listed on this website, but not currently in stock, and that must be re-ordered with a price difference.  Titles listed as in stock are on occasion unable to be found on the shelf or in the process of being sold in store.

If any variation in price or availability occurs, Bruce McKenzie Booksellers will attempt to contact you via email, txt or telephone to confirm your order before we charge your card or despatch. Titles listed as not in stock are generally obtainable, but may have become out of print.  Similarly, we will contact you via email to confirm your order if a title is expected to take longer than 28 – 35 days to obtain, or no longer available.

If you are completing a transaction from outside of New Zealand and are unsure of exchange rates, check the rates before placing your order.

If you use a credit card registered outside New Zealand, the card issuer determines the total based on the exchange rate at the time your card is charged. They may also charge a fee for currency conversion, so if you are unsure check with them before placing your order.

As purchaser, you will bear any risk of currency fluctuations.


If you are not completely happy with your purchase, we will gladly refund you via your original method of payment, less shipping costs. Please make sure the item is not:

  1. a) altered or dirty;
  2. b) damaged after purchase;
  3. c) purchased on sale;

as we cannot accept returns in these circumstances.

All returned items will need to be sent back to us within 30 days of purchase with the original receipt and reason for the return.  Return shipping will be at your own expense and shipping and handling on these returns are non-refundable.

To ensure that your return or exchange goes as smoothly as possible, please include your name, address, telephone number, original invoice and reasons for your return and send by courier to:
