Bookstore / Stationery Shops

Hi! Can anyone point me to a good (with lots of variety) bookstore/stationery shop ... I am looking for school supplies (including school bags, lunch boxes). Would be great if it’s near an MTR station near city centre =).

Also, wondering if the outlet mall at Tung Chung is worth a visit; is it really cheap?

TiA!

Check with Sogo Department Store in Causeway Bay in which you can find stationery and lunch boxes there.

The outlet in Tung Chung, well, I would say save you time...

Aeon Living Plaza has a lot of stationery and household items, most of them priced at $12 a piece. The Mongkok branch is one of the larger branches.

Awesome, might be staying at Causeway Bay area. Will surely check it out.

Will also be going to Mongkok area so good to know there’s something there as well.

So I take it shops at Citygste outlet isn’t really like drop down prices? (Like clothes for example).

If you stay in Causeway Bay, you must visit Eslite Causeway Bay Store at Hysan Place.

My favourite stationery store (where I have never failed to find whatever I needed) is Reliance Stationery at 17-19 Wing Wo Street in Central (the Sheung Wan end).

(It's just stationery though - not a bookstore)

Citygate isn't particularly cheap. They may have some good offers, though.

The main thing that draws me to that mall time and again is because it's the best place to find normal sized shoes. The rest of the city has only small sizes available, with mens sizes topping out at 44/45 (women's 4-5 sizes smaller even).

Eslite would be the one to visit for something a bit different. If you want just standard goods you can find everywhere, there is a Commercial Press at Yee Wo St near Sugar St. You could also take a trip to Tai Koo area and visit both a proper Aeon and Apita.

So many wonderful places to visit, stoked! Will definitely have a look at these places (Just read about Eslite too!) And not really particular about buying books. Just thought they usually come together with school supplies and the likes. =)

Thanks everyone!!!! Appreciate the help!
