Another one bites the dust

Another bookstore that is. First there was Borders which closed down sometime last year, then a branch of Harris in Great World and now Page One closes its doors in its only branch in Vivocity.

The digital revolution definitely hastened the demise of bricks and mortar bookstores here in Singapore, with people starting to buy e-books and apps these days instead of physical books and rent increases not helping the cause.

In any case, I only saw the ad for the closing sale recently but since the deal was so amazing - 70% off storewide, I was worried the best stuff would be gone. I still went though and brought back quite a decent haul.

Personal finance and investment books (SGD8.40 and SGD11.55)

Style books (SGD18 and SGD10)

Children's room design books (SGD16 and SGD5.40)

Parenting and baby books (SGD6, SGD7 and SGD8.85)

Garden design book (SGD12.80)
