Eslite Xinyi Store will become the next 24-hour bookstore in Taipei, Eslite Spectrum announced on Thursday. The popular bookstore will start its 24-hour trial on May 29, two days before another 24-hour Dunnan store officially closes.
Wu Min-chieh, chairman of Eslite Spectrum Corp., expressed hopes that the new 24-hour bookstore can “be noticeable to every reader,” providing a range of books that meets the demands of thousands of readers.
“Eslite Dunnan bookstore is like a rose in every reader’s heart. Although we all have one, each person has his or her unique rose,” Wu said, adding that the Dunnan store is a place she will never be able to say goodbye.
Xinyi store, which opened in 2006 sitting nearby Taipei City Hall metro station, is located at the economic and cultural center of Taipei city.
Xinyi store has more than 170,000 books and its space is 2.5 times larger than the Dunnan store. What’s more, there is a music shop, and a supermarket opening 24 hours inside the building. In the late night, you can have a cup of coffee and enjoy cocktail at the Eslite Xinyi store. This new bookstore will be turned into a day and night reading museum.
