FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE ALSO COMMUTING LIKE ME, HERE’S HOW TO GO THERE

If you’re coming from Pasig Palengke:
1. Take a jeepney to any destination going to Rizal (as these jeepneys take a bit stretch of C. Raymundo where the warehouse is).
2. Tell the driver to drop you off at the corner of C. Raymundo Avenue and Bernal street (landmarks are BDO and Caltex gasoline station). The Scholastic Warehouse is on the side of the road where you will get off but it doesnt have any known landmark that you can tell the driver.

3. Continue walking towards where the jeepney is heading until you see Floor Center on the other side of the road.

Things to take note for first timers:
1. Wear comfortable clothing or bring extra clothing if you can. Take note that it’s a warehouse sale. Don’t expect that the area will be air conditioned.
2. Bring water or any liquid to hydrate you if you’re planning to stay there long as the area can really get humid and hot.
3. Bring face mask or hand sanitizer especially if you’re allergic to dust.
2. Manage your expectations. Not all books are in min condition and some books that you’re expecting may not be available.
3. They accept major credit cards (I called them and they confirmed.)
4. Bring eco-bags (and help save the earth).

I was not able to attended their Christmas Warehouse Sale last year so I’ll definitely make sure to attend this time.

Let’s just hope that they will have a good selection of books this year! Good luck to all of us! See you there!

Note: The pictures were all grabbed from Google Street View with a capture date of March 2014. Some landmarks might have changed.

    1. I am not sure with that. It depends with the turnout of people, I believe, and the people who goes their first and ask for the good titles. What I can suggest is to go their as early as you can or better yet try calling them and inquire. 🙂

  1. OH MY WORD. This sounds flipping fantastic! We have a book sale here in Malaysia called the Big Bad Wolf sale and every year, books are REALLY cheap. And last year’s Preview Sale was the best. So many wonderful books too – including the Throne of Glass books, The Maze Runner and other well-known series for a quarter of their actual price!

    Hope you have fun at the Scholastic Sale, Mark! 🙂
