About Us

We Love Stories

M. Judson is proud to be downtown Greenville’s local independent bookstore. Located in the historic downtown courthouse building, our bookshop offers bestsellers, classics, local specialty items, cards, gifts, and novelties for book lovers. Our booksellers read first, recommend second. Our baristas love coffee just as much as they love books. And we all love stories.

We believe that stories don’t just come wrapped in book jackets. Sometimes they’re bottled in a wine, roasted in a bean, baked in a bread, woven into a tea towel, or created in a moment. That’s why we’re more than just a bookstore. Our patron Mary Camilla Judson had an incredible life. Our building has an amazing history. All of our authors, vendors, readers, books and gifts have stories that made them who they are. And we’re all about weaving those together.

If you’ve found your way here, we’re willing to bet you love stories too. Here’s ours.
