MPH Bookstores Sdn Bhd is offering items from as low as RM1 and markdowns of up to 90% on books, stationery, toys, gifts, gadgets and many more at the MPH Warehouse Clearance Sale.
MPH said in a statement that with such offers, customers do not have to think twice about picking up their favourite titles or anything else that they might fancy.
The clearance sale, which runs from Nov 1 until this Sunday, is taking place at PNMB Logistics on Jalan KPB 3, Kawasan Perindustrian Balakong, from 10am to 8pm.
“Throngs of book lovers arrived as early as 10am to get their hands on bestsellers, young adult titles, children’s books, romance, sci-fi, crime, thrillers and business titles, cookbooks and more, leaving with boxes or bags full of items,” MPH added.
The company said the sale is being held in support of “Kempen Dekad Membaca Kebangsaan”, which is part of the Education Ministry’s (MoE) strategy for the National Reading Decade 2020-2030 Plan to get Malaysians to read more.
MPH Bookstores COO Donald Kee previously told The Malaysian Reserve that the company has embarked on an initiative to promote the 10-year long National Reading Decade Campaign developed by the MoE.
Kee said the initiative is aimed at enticing students and parents to read more.
The 10-day clearance sale in Balakong serves as another platform to promote a reading culture in the country, while providing the best offers to consumers.
In July, MPH Bookstores opened another avenue for avid readers to purchase books without having to get out of the house or braving the traffic and shopping mall crowds, via a partnership with e-commerce platform Shopee.
Apart from its website MPH Online, book lovers can order books via Shopee from the MPH official store on the platform.
Through the partnership, both MPH and Shopee hope to reach out to more Malaysians and foster the love for reading, while at the same time supporting the country’s aspirations in becoming a reading nation by 2030.
