Kinokuniya Company has opened its first store in Cambodia, in the new Aeon Mall Sen Sok City in Phnom Penh. The 5,700-square-foot store is on the first floor of the mall and offers primarily English-language books, stationery and general merchandise, as well as some Japanese-language books and magazines.
Kinokuniya said that the inventory "has been arranged to entice Cambodia's young population, with an average age of 24, to visit with ease. Kinokuniya aims to build a bookstore that is hard to tire of, even if frequented every day." The store is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
The Aeon Mall Sen Sok City is a shopping complex of more than a million square feet in the northern part of Phnom Penh close to the city center. Developers are building commercial structures and housing in the area.
The new store is Kinokuniya's 30th store outside Japan. It also has branches in the U.S., Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, Taiwan, the UAE, Indonesia and Myanmar.
