Similar Experience – I am amazed at the responses. I thought it was just me! I am a professor and felt "less than" with the grilling I received. I needed a specific subject for a child. I was made to feel as if I did not have the sense to know what I…

Disgusted – I was absolutely insulted today. I went in this bookstore to browse a bit and hopefully find a book. Rarely can I walk out of a bookstore without a book. As I was looking through a book about vintage clothing she walked over said it was a…

Go elsewhere! – I'm glad that I looked this store up after my visit. I have learned that it is the owner, and not me, that is CRAZY. Just like others, I had the book I had been browsing for a few seconds snatched away. We left in disgust. I actually let…

Extremely Bad Customer Service – This is the most unpleasant store I've ever visited. Please take my advice and stay away unless you want to get disgusted by the customer service. 0 -10 stars

Absolutely Horrible Experience! – I'm in Roanoke for the weekend with my parents and some friends. We were in downtown for lunch and noticed Cantos. I'm a huge fan of bookstores, especially independent ones, so we decided to check it out. I immediately found my way to the…

Remember Seinfeld's Soup Nazi? Prepare to meet 'BOOK NAZI' – I had the exact same experience as R.C. below earlier today. The owner, who's name is Cathy Procopio I've since learned, came up to me within one minute of me entering the store and picking up the first book (a paperback) that caught my…

Shopping at Cantos is like visiting Miss Havisham on acid – I had the perhaps the most unusual and insulting shopping experience of my life at Cantos. I was looking (and had found) a book that I wanted. As I opened the book, the shopkeep rushed over and asked me if it was in my "price range" --…

Treated me like an Idiot – Alright, I know I should have seen this coming. I read all the reviews before walking into the store, and still went in. I was looking for a specific book, and as I walked in noticed the foreign language sign, and hoped that, as an…
