Why Visit POPULAR Bookstore

“Hey, they have a website; why should I bother visiting their brick-and-mortar stores?”

For one, nothing beats inspecting tangible items. But there are many other reasons to visit POPULAR Bookstore branches in Singapore. And here’s a few of them that will make you change clothes and ready up after reading this section:

Quality and Up-to-Date Books

First of all, POPULAR takes care of their merchandise. You won’t be seeing used books sold as new. They also keep things up-to-date, so the books are pretty pristine, not just in appearance but also in content (current edition textbooks).

Academic Materials and More

Whether you need school and office supplies, they got it. Even if you’re looking for those tricky laminating pouches, they have it. You can even see tech gadgets (phones, laptops, and computer accessories) displayed. For pupils and university students, this bookshop should be your go-to place for all your scholastic needs.

Chinese Books

POPULAR Bookstore also takes pride in being the No. 1 bookstore for Chinese books in Singapore. You’ll find the best-selling titles and classics with ease.

Easy to Find

As we’ve mentioned earlier, POPULAR Bookstore Singapore is everywhere. They currently have around 30 established retail stores (exclusive of the ones in schools and institutions) throughout the city. Check their store locator to know the nearest one in your area.

Peace and Relaxation

POPULAR keeps its stores peaceful, making it a great destination after long hours of venturing into crowded malls or walking through the busy streets of Singapore. If you want to put your mind at ease after a long day, visiting one of its stores to check books can lighten up your mood.

Trivia: Which POPULAR Bookstore Is Largest in Singapore

The largest POPULAR Bookstore branch in Singapore is the one established in Bras Basah Complex. Although POPULAR didn’t disclose its size (or the size of any store for that matter), the majority of our fellow Singaporeans in this forum unanimously agree that it’s the Bras Basah branch that takes the crown for the largest POPULAR Bookstore in Singapore.
