Like always, let’s start with some history of Eslite Bookstore. Established back in 1989 by Robert Wu Ching-Yu, the first outlet focuses on art and humanities-related books. Also, Eslite Bookstore is the very first bookstore to introduce a 24-hour system in Taiwan at its Dunhua store and this attracted night-time readers.

Eslite Bookstore has a total of 48 outlets solely in Taiwan and now, this mega bookstore chain will be spreading its wings of knowledge to Malaysia. It was rumoured that Eslite Bookstore in Malaysia would be 3300-6600 square meters, housing countless genres. Also, it’s the very first Eslite Bookstore right here in South East Asia!

When it comes to the opening date and location, the bookstore is most likely to open next year in KL City Centre. But since we’re now battling COVID-19, this date is subject to changes.
