It’s official. Kinokuniya at Liang Court will shut down for good on 21st April, leaving it with 3 retail outlets, at Ngee Ann City, Bugis Junction and Jem.
Compared to the other retail outlets, the one at Liang Court holds a special place for many of us JCG members and alumnus. I’m writing this to commemorate and remember Kinokuniya at Liang Court.
is was JCG’s, especially Anime Manga Subcom’s, secret hang out spot. This secret spot with low traffic let our members browse and delight ourselves at our own pace, like a child at a candy store ogling over its contents.
I was introduced to the secret hideout through my seniors when I’ve joined the Anime and Manga (AM) subcommittee. Kinokuniya @ Liang Court was part of the yearly tradition for the AM seniors to bring their freshies during the first outing of the new AY. We roamed free in this labyrinth of knowledge. It was then that I found out about the bargaining alley, uniquely available only at its Liang Court branch.
Bargain Alley – Where the Cheap and Good Stuff lies
Seeking good deals? As students with little to no monetary income, we are, sad to say – ‘broke’.
The bargaining alley is a treasure trove of knowledge, packed with surprises that you never know what you might find, at steeply discounted prices.
