Hours & Directions

COVID-19 Update

March 30: In his March 30 press briefing, Governor Northam continues to say that businesses like Prince Books may remain open to customers as long as we practice social distancing. We are currently processing many online, email and phone orders, and we continue to receive boxes from our wholesaler and publishers. You are welcome to request curbside delivery, or you may come into the store. We spray the counter and the doors throughout the day. Please continue to order from us! Thank you for your business.


For now, Prince Books intends to remain open. If you would like a book and don't want to come into the store, please call us with your book request and credit card number, (or place order at  prince-books.com), tell us that you would like us to bring your purchase out to your car. Park on Martin's Lane next to the back door, and call us so we can run your purchase out to you. 

 In the meantime we'll be closing daily at 5 p.m.  Thank you for your business!

Driving Directions

PARKING: Prince Books is located in the heart of downtown Norfolk; we have free parking when the bank is closed. TowneBank closes at 5 p.m. This means that you may park behind the store in the bank parking lot after 5 p.m. and all day on the weekends and banking holidays. UPDATE: TowneBank is graciously allowing our customers to park in their parking lot while shopping at Prince Books when the bank is open. Just tell the parking attendants, Craig and Johnny, that you are going into Prince Books.
