We are excited to announce that Green Apple Books has expanded! On August 1, 2014, we opened a new store on 9th Avenue in the Inner Sunset.
Wait!? Are you closing the 506 Clement location?
No way! In defiance of anyone who says print is dead, we’re going to have TWO locations, each with its own personality and focus.
Where will the new store be located?
1231 9th Ave. in the Inner Sunset, in the building currently occupied by Le Video. [MAP] The phone number is 415-742-5833.
Are you partnering with Le Video?
We are sharing space with Le Video, who has moved to the 2nd floor of the building. We're cohabitating, not marrying.
What are the hours?
We're open 10am-10pm, seven days a week, though that's subject to change.
Will you buy used books?
At least through the end of 2014, we will NOT be buying used books on 9th Avenue. But we are buying yet more books on Clement Street. Details here.
What kind of bookstore is Green Apple Books on the Park?
Much like Green Apple at 506 Clement, Books on the Park is a generalist bookstore with new and used books. We'll emphasize children's books, fiction, cookbooks, and new releases. And we'll do our best to adapt quickly to whatever the neighborhood most wants. Think less dust, more breathing room, and plenty of fine books.
Will you hold events at the new store?
YES. As anyone who’s been to 506 Clement knows, space is at a premium. Books on the Park will be more open so that we can host in-store events. We are also excited to partner with neighborhood business for out of store events.
How can I stay connected to I don’t miss anything?
