Bookstores in Chengdu are remolding themselves to keep pace with the changing times.
“A bookstore is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking,” said American television actor Jerry Seinfeld. While people in our E-era deplore the fact that the book retailing market has been eroded and the “piece of evidence” is giving way to TV shows, household entertainments, and the short-lived memory of online reading, bookstores are staging a comeback with remolded versions to cater to the changing demands of bibliophiles of our times.
These modern versions have found their footing in Chengdu and are gaining popularity among local people, who appreciate the fashionable designs, constantly updated stock of books and full-functional amenities to create a homelike atmosphere and serve all purposes at one spot.
Fang Suo Commune
The Fang Suo Commune is an all-in-one venue selling not only books but food, drinks, clothes, and conceptual housewares and gadgets.
With an area of nearly 4, 000 sq.m, the Fang Suo Commune consists of several functional sections: a book retailing area, boutiques, a café and a reading & interaction zone. The layout and design of the bookstore were conducted by a group of renowned designers to represent the modern concept of space, blended with classic European styles.
