SINGAPORE — The Popular bookstore chain will bid farewell to its Thomson Plaza outlet, one of its longest-serving stores, after 31 years on Sunday (23 June).

The outlet has been operating since 1988 at the same location. Popular will close the outlet due to “lease issues”, the chain said in a statement on Friday (21 June).

Popular is inviting its customers to share their memories of the Thomson Plaza store in a Facebook photo contest. Three lucky winners will walk away with $20 worth of Popular vouchers. The contest will end on 25 June.

The outlet has been holding a “Forget Me Not – Everything Must Go” sale since last month. It is offering 15 per cent off all items, and up to 90 per cent off on selected products.

The Popular chain, which is celebrating its 95th anniversary this year, had held a promotion rewarding its top 95 spenders at the Thomson Plaza outlet with a complimentary three-year membership.

Members can enjoy up to 10 per cent off at all Popular and UrbanWrite stores, as well as exclusive invites to members-only events.
