#49 Books Inc.

San Francisco




This indie has ELEVEN stores around California — mostly in the Bay area.  I’m not going to all of them.  I’m only visiting this one in SF’s Pacific Heights neighborhood.

I didn’t realize Books Inc. was a large regional chain until I got here, but the company is privately owned, and each store is given autonomy to purchase their own selection of books.  Each store also works closely with neighborhood businesses and authors to reinforce their neighborhood integration.P1010401

For example, the Pacific Heights store has a great selection of children’s books.  They actively look at school connections as a way of growing business.

It’s an attractive store full of people, children, and pets, and has clearly done a great job of providing its community with relevant content.

Really, a very lovely neighborhood store.
