B&N has a huge store called Power Plant right on the Bay-----probably any newish book you want will be here---now that Borders has bitten the dust, B&N is one of the few big bookstores left and could use our patronage......
They do have a club with discounts for about $20 a year-----
What to buy: books
What to pay: retail

"The CD Joint at the Point" is a great place to shop for music. They've got a great selection of new popular music, and a lot of used CDs as well. The prices there are always good. They're also really good with ordering CDs. I've had orders arrive at the store as early as two days after I placed them. This is a bonus for anyone who isn't staying in town for long.
What to buy: CDs
T-shirts and other junk
For years, I picked up Asian ingrediants whenever I was in the western US or New York...... now I have everything I need at this large Asian grocery store. I remember when there was a 'Super Fresh' at this location.
What to buy: Besides having all the required ingredients for Asian recipes, you'll find the cheapest and freshest fruits and vegetables here.
You'll even find a little Sushi Bar, a Chinese Noodle Bar, and places to buy Asian household goods and rent Asian videos.
Let's just say that the butcher shop smells 'authentic'
They are a little bit weak when it comes to Indian ingredients.
Built in 1891, this little building along Roland Avenue was the first example of "Shopping Center" to appear in America. They used the European 'multi-use' concept, with residences above the stores. There is even a fire station attached at the back side.
The stores still remain, but I don't think anyone lives upstairs anymore.
