Powell's has been around since 1971, when the store first opened in Portland, Oregon. The website first hit the Internet in 1994 and was an immediate success. With a couple of years the store had all of its inventory listed on line, and it continues this tradition today. Find virtually any book you want at Powell's, whether it is new or used. The store also carries a selection of gifts and cards for those special occasions.
