Times Bookstores Open New Concept Store at Marina Square

[Media Invite]

Our family was extremely thrilled upon learning that we will be attending the opening of Times Bookstores New Concept Store at Marina Square. The first thing that comes to our children's minds is new books! Whenever we enter the bookstore, I will make my way to the stationery while Denver will head down to the Fiction section in search for his favourite books in the Young Adult/Teen reads area. Lately, he has been reading Lorien Legacies series and he has a lot to catch up on after his PSLE! Gladys on the other hand prefers adventure/picture books and she will park herself at a corner, reading.

Spanning over 2,800 square feet, the new store feels cosy and welcoming. Loving the cheery bright orange palette that complements beautifully with the warm brown hues of the wood furnishings. Since it's establishment in 1978, Times Bookstores has been a leading retailer of English language books and complementary products in Singapore and Malaysia. Apart from offering a wide variety of books catered to readers of all ages and interests (including lifestyle, fiction, non-fiction books), they also carry educational toys, games, stationery, gifts and accessories.

In today's world of technological advances, Times Bookstores wanted to emphasize that tactile book reading and experiential learning is equally important, relevant and exciting. Unveiling its sixth store, Times Bookstores are poised to further enhance their offerings and focus into a renewed brand direction of catering to the reading and lifestyle needs of children and the whole family.


Walking around the new concept store is a breeze as the bookshelves are spaced widely apart. Even strollers can find its way through easily. We don't have to worry about bumping or obstructing others when browsing and shopping for books.

Books and items are neatly displayed on the shelves which is not only visually pleasing but increases our shopping experience.  Every section is clearly labelled and we have no problem finding our desired merchandise.

It was a fun-filled evening. Apart from free balloons, popcorn and candy floss, children as well as adults were entertained by the magic tricks performed by the smart-looking magician!

I was very impressed with the lovely illustrations sketched by a talented artist who can draw with both his left and right hand!

Treasure hunting at Times is a fun way to get to know the bookstore better within a short time. Not forgetting, there are friendly staff around who helped us to locate books/items that are not available on the shelves.

The children happily 'hunting' for their loots.

Science projects, stationery, games are some of the things our kiddos desired and looked out for too.

Books remains as the children's main interest as they will pick one from the shelf and start reading. Approximately 30% of the store is dedicated to children's books and merchandise where there will be one that will suit their needs.

The entire space is brightly-lit which enhances reading experience.
