Powell's Flagship to Reopen with Limited Hours
Powell's Books in Portland, Ore., will reopen portions of its flagship downtown store with limited hours beginning Friday. The store has been closed since March. Customers will be able to shop in the southeast part of the building, known as the Green and Blue rooms, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Typical safety measures, such as hand sanitizer stations and plexiglass screens at checkout, have been implemented. The number of customers allowed to shop at any one time will also be limited.
Referencing the opening of the company's location in Beaverton, owner Emily Powell said, "Seeing you and the enthusiasm we all share for books and reading has been a true joy for our book-loving hearts."
