Huggs-Epigram Coffee Bookstore reopening on Jan 6
After a five-month-long wait, the uniquely Singaporean concept store will be opening its doors once again.
After a five-month hiatus, Huggs-Epigram Coffee Bookstore will reopen its doors to the public on Jan 6.
The store had been closed since Aug 1 due to the impact COVID-19 had on its business. While reading enthusiasts could still purchase their books from Epigram Books’ office at Toa Payoh, they could no longer enjoy the authentic feeling of reading local literature with a cup of Huggs’ coffee.
The concept store revolves around being uniquely Singaporean. The books offered are all about Singapore, by Singaporean authors, or published by Singaporean publishers. Likewise, the beverages available are of familiar localised flavours such as Kopi O or Milk Teh Si.
In celebration of the bookstore’s reopening, there will also be a 10 per cent storewide discount on all books, including non-Epigram titles, throughout the month of January.
The outlet is located at the heart of the Central Business District (CBD) area at The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) Centre, just opposite Maxwell Food Centre.
The store will only be open on weekdays, from 10am to 6pm, and is closed on weekends and public holidays.
Recently, Huggs has also opened their flagship store within walking distance of the bookstore, where they sell a larger variety of food.
