In 2020, all Powell’s locations are closed on Christmas Day.
For first-time visitors and seasoned book browsers, Powell’s Books is a magical book land full of hours of bibliophile entertainment. This holiday season, start a new holiday tradition at Portland’s favorite independent bookstore.
Powell’s flagship location, Powell’s City of Books on Burnside will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Christmas day. After you’re finished with breakfast and presents, take a trip downtown for a little shelf perusing. The drive will be quiet and downtown offers free parking on holidays.
Have each person in your group find a special book to take home. You’ll have nine color-coded rooms and over 3,500 different sections to choose from, offering something for every interest, including a selection of out-of-print and hard-to-find titles. With that many books to choose from you’ll all be able to find something for everyone in your family.
Happy browsing, my fellow book lovers! I hope this gave you a fun and new tradition for your family and friends.
