National Bookstore opens for pickups and deliveries in Metro Manila

National Bookstore customers have something to celebrate these days despite the ongoing enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila, the entire Luzon, and other provinces.

The country’s total bookstore started accepting orders for delivery or pickup on May 4, 2020. On its online collaterals, National Bookstore announced that its customers can now conveniently shop for safety essentials, school and office supplies, books, and other items through its official website and its official stores in e-commerce portals Lazada and Shopee.

In areas outside the National Capital Region that are in general community quarantine (GCQ), some National Bookstore branches have already re-opened physically, though observing physical distancing and other precautionary measures within stores to ensure the safety of everyone.

In Metro Manila, the company has strategically opened four of its megastores to cover all cities across the metropolis. All areas in the metro are assigned in one of those four stores. To know where you could place your orders based on your area, check out this table:
