Kinokuniya bookstore to open first Abu Dhabi branch in March

Reading is one of life’s great joys and book worms in Abu Dhabi are soon to be in for a treat.

Finding a great book and struggling to put it down is a great feeling, and we can’t help but get more and more books for our home library.

If, like us, browsing bookstores is your kind of thing, then there’s some good news on the horizon.

Japanese bookstore Kinokuniya, which has a branch in Dubai Mall, is set to open its first shop in the capital in March this year.

We already told you that it would be opening at The Galleria Al Maryah Island and now the grand opening is just two months away.

Whether it's cookbooks, autobiographies, fiction or graphic novels, all the bases will be covered, offering readers more choice when picking up new titles to read.

Naoya Hirata, managing director of Kinokuniya UAE, says: “We are very excited to celebrate our unique Japanese heritage within The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s vibrant mix, and we look forward to welcoming the Abu Dhabi community to our store.

"Young children will love Kinokuniya’s learning and development series, teens will be captivated with popular young-adult titles, and thousands of classic and contemporary fiction and non-fiction titles will suit all preferences.”

We can’t wait to browse and pick up a few new books when it opens its doors.
