Green Apple Books

    A staple for over 45 years in the city of San Francisco, Green Apple Books has remained one of the premiere independent book retailers in Northern California. Founded by Richard Savoy in 1967, Green Apple Books has since changed owners, as today former employees, Kevin Ryan, Pete Mulvihill and Kevin Hunsanger own and manage the store. Offering an incredibly diverse range of books, from world history and cooking, to books on business, health and nature, it is hard to not find a book of interest at Green Apple. In addition to their expansive reading selection, the store also houses a wide range of new and used LP’s, cd’s, toys and board games. The collection of books and other offerings are so vast that the store has expanded into the Green Apple Books Annex in the adjacent shopfront. In the eyes of co-owner Kevin Ryan, the underlying mission of Green Apple is to expose customers to books they’ll love but just don’t know about yet. With over 60 years of experience as book-sellers and store employees, one of the owners' greatest joys comes in recommending books to patrons of the store. A fixture of the local Richmond community, Green Apple also features an array of monthly in-store events which serve to promote authors and their books.Show lessRead more
