The Purple Store's Seattle Store Hours and Directions


While many of you shop with us online, if you're nearby or visiting Seattle please stop by and browse our newly EXPANDED Seattle location!

Our Seattle storefront is now more than twice its (previously compact) size! Come pick up something purple for yourself or a friend.

We love recycling packing materials, so bring any packing peanuts, bubble wrap, or air pillows with you! (Boxes not needed, thanks, except holding other stuff.)

Our current open hours are:
- Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (usually open by about 10:00 a.m., sometimes closing a bit after six)
- Saturdays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. sometimes a bit earlier and a bit later
- Often Sunday afternoons
- Other times by appointment if you can't make our regular hours (please ask!)

We're happy to set up a time outside of our official hours. If you'd like to come by at another day or time, please e-mail us requesting an appointment!  We're usually accommodating when we can make it work.

The Purple Store's Address and Directions

The Purple Store 7616 Aurora Ave N Seattle, WA 98103

We're at 77th and Aurora, a block or so north of the PCC and 3 blocks north of Green Lake. Look for the big, purple wall.
By car... Park either in front (before 3 p.m. weekdays), on the sidestreets, or in our many spots in back.  If you're driving from the north on Aurora be sure to turn left at 77th as there's no good left turn after that.  If you miss 77th, turn right anywhere and come back up through the neighborhood to 77th.
By bus.... The Rapid Ride E line runs right by our front door.  Hop off by the PCC just after Green Lake (northbound) or just after 77th (southbound).
