If you are in Singapore and looking for books, the Grassland Book Store should definitely in your consideration.
This bookstore is one of the oldest bookstores in the country, selling books and stationery since the 1960s. It was opened by Chew Ching Suaa, an avid reader who opened the bookstore after being expelled for student activism during his high school years. Since he opened the bookstore, many families would flock the store to purchase supplies for their children and other needs.
Children can even read some of their books in the stalls, making them a favorite hangout place during their free time. When you check out their stalls, you may even discover books originally banned for sale in the country like Shi Nuo’s ‘The Long March’. The prices are very cheap as compared to those in large stores so if you are looking for bargain prices, this is the place to visit.
If you wish to check out the Grassland Book Store, you can check them out at their stall at Beauty World Centre in Upper Bukit Timah. You can also contact their number to inquire about their stocks or special requests.
