National Book Store Is Open For Your Reading, Art Supplies, and Office Supplies NeedsThere are three ways you can order from National Book Store without stepping out of your home.by Rachel Perez .
Metro Manila is still under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) until May 15, 2020, and there is no word yet if we'll transition to general community quarantine (GCQ) after that. If you need to replenish art and home office supplies, National Book Store is open!
This is important because art supplies, such as glue, paint, markers, etc. keep the kids busy (and creative!). Perhaps you're looking for your next page-turner or setting up a home business and in need of office supplies. Your trusty one-stop shop is accepting orders for pick-up or delivery.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
There are three ways you can order from National Book StoreDepending on how urgent you need books and supplies from National Book Store, there are three ways you can order. These are:
Place an order on its website.
To place an order via its website (www.nationalbookstore.com), just visit it anytime. However, orders placed after 4 p.m. will be processed the next day. Cash on delivery is temporarily suspended to limit contact. Deliveries in Metro Manila done via the website may take seven to 15 days due to the limited couriers during the quarantine.CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
