Hours, Parking, Directions & Delivery

Malaprop's is open every day (except Thanksgiving and Christmas). Our hours (during the time of Covid) are: 

Monday to Saturday: 10 am to 5 pm; Sunday 11 am to 3 pm

Please find important Covid-related details and updates here.

We are at 55 Haywood Street, at the corner of Haywood and Walnut. 

Want to make a fun walking tour of downtown Asheville?  We're on the Asheville Urban Trail route, and the metal sculpture near our store is featured.  Print out a copy of the Urban Trail map and get walking (but stop in to see us on the way). 

For up-to-the-minute status on parking downtown, visit the city website.

Parking on the street is metered and is free after 6 pm and on Sundays! We also recommend parking in one of the city garages. Unless Special Event Parking is in effect, the first hour is free.  The second hour or any portion of it is $2.50, followed by $1.25 for each additional hour or fraction thereof. (The Daily Maximum is $12.)  We can provide a ticket for an extra free hour.

The Civic Center Garage and Rankin Avenue Garage are both within a block of Malaprop's. The Wall Street Garage (off Otis Street) and the Buncombe County Health and Human Services Garage at the corner of Sears Alley and Coxe Avenue are both about 4 blocks away.
