I’ve never seen a bookstore like this. Thousands upon thousands titles, with hardcover, paperback, and used close to each other; super convenient. They have it all, from current best-sellers and new releases to limited circulation titles. Nice selection for all ages. Helpful staff.
I was expecting a small, cozy type bookstore. To my surprise, this place is huge!!! A book lover's paradise. They also have tons of used books. There's a coffee shop where you can grab a cup of joe, relax, and people watch. We enjoyed wondering...More

They have a parking lot! I also usually find parking on the street a couple blocks to the west. And, I often combine Powell's with a stop at Whole Foods, so I park at Whole Foods, go to Powell's, come back to WF and buy what I need - parking is free if you spend $10 (their 365 brand is affordable!) and you're not there more than two hours, last time I did this, anyway; things change so check ahead. Enjoy!
