Popular independent bookstore McNally Jackson is opening a new flagship storefront at Rockefeller Center, Tishman Speyer announced Thursday.

The new space, located at 1 Rockefeller Plaza, will occupy approximately 7,000 square feet and is expected to open in winter 2022. It will be McNally Jackson’s fifth location in New York, with additional stores in downtown Brooklyn, Soho, Williamsburg and Seaport.

Originally founded in 2004 by Sarah McNally, the independent bookstore quickly became a staple of the Big Apple’s literary scene. Each store has a wide selection of books and merchandise to choose from, ensuring that every reader will be able to enjoy them.

The addition of McNally Jackson adds to the Rockefeller Center retail roster and follows a drive to revitalize the neighborhood as a gathering space for New Yorkers. Some of the latest retail additions to the plaza include Brooklyn-based record store Rough Trade, clothing/paper flower store Lingua Franca, and Afro-centric shoe and accessories designer Armando Cabral.
