Powells Bookstore Portland Oregon

Powells Bookstore Portland Oregon – If you’re a book lover and you live in Portland Oregon, then Powells Bookstore is no surprise to you because it is a local favorite.
Powell’s City of
Books is one of the most visited spots in town whether you’re visiting
Portland and looking for popular places to visit, or whether you’ve lived in
Portland your entire life.  they say 80,000 people browse the shelves of
Powells each day.   If you’re visiting with a group, you can even arrange
a tour
.  “From humble storefront beginnings in 1971 on a
derelict corner of northwest Portland, Oregon, Powell’s Books has grown into
one of the world’s great bookstores, with seven locations in the Portland
metropolitan area, and one of the book world’s most successful dot-coms (www.powells.com),
serving customers worldwide.” (Powells.com)

Powell’s personifies Portland in so many ways:  first of all, it’s an
independently owned bookstore.  Portland in general is highly supportive
of locally owned businesses and supporting the local economy.  While we
don’t outwardly shun all big box chain stores, we prefer to do our business at
home.  Perhaps more importantly, Powells Bookstore is simply one of the
finest bookstores in the world.  Powell’s City of Books takes up an
entire city block downtown, and you can get lost for hours exploring the labyrinth
of color-coded rooms.  You will probably need a map, the store is so big:

The technical and scientific books take up and entire store of their own.
And, Hawthorne, Beaverton, and the Portland Airport each get Powell’s
Bookstores of their own.

Powells Books also features a wide range of unique gift items, so it is a
fun time to shop for the holidays or any time you are looking for a unique
gift.  Powell’s City of Books is conveniently located in Downtown
Portland off of Burnside, and features a coffee shop where you can spend some
time looking out the windows people watching, or reading one of your new (or
used) book finds.
