Book lovers can rejoice as Kinokuniya Bookstore will open its first location in the UAE capital at The Galleria Al Maryah Island in spring 2020.
Since Kinokuniya Bookstore first opened in Tokyo in 1927, it has become a beloved brand across the world with flagship stores from as far afield as New York and San Francisco to Sydney and Kuala Lumpur.
The brand was established in the UAE in Dubai Mall towards the end of 2008, and in spring 2020 Kinokuniya will open at Abu Dhabi’s most-anticipated new entertainment and lifestyle destination.
Kinokuniya houses an unmatched selection of books, magazines, comics, and gifts will cater to every member of the community. Moreover, the bookstore carries an extensive array of educational materials, art supplies, crafts, and gifts ensuring there is no end to the creativity, and providing a constant source of inspiration for young and old alike.
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.”
Kinokuniya will enhance The Galleria’s comprehensive entertainment and leisure offering which includes three levels of world-class entertainment for all ages, family parks, a 21-screen VOX cinema with IMAX and first-in-the-region culinary concept Central Kitchens.
The Galleria’s much-anticipated expansion will introduce 270 high-street and international brands, including 70 casual dining options and over 250,000 square feet of entertainment for all ages.
All this will add to The Galleria’s established Luxury Collection which houses over 130 of the world’s most coveted fashion, jewellery and watch boutiques and The Dining Collection’s outstanding array of award-winning restaurants along Al Maryah Island’s Waterfront Promenade, which includes Zuma, La Petite Maison and Nusr-Et.
