“The whole pandemic has changed the landscape of businesses and we have to adapt to the new normal in this new world. We understand the need to access affordable books during this trying time for many reasons. Kids are still not allowed to go to school and parents will constantly need to think of activities for their kids. Now parents do not need to wait to receive their kids’ activity books but can just purchase it and pick it up in the next 2-hour. There are many Malaysians who are still worried to visit the retail scene and this has pushed us to come up with the idea of marrying online and offline store in order to allow people to shop for books with an ease of mind. The demand for books has increased tremendously during these trying times and we are allowing multiple platform access for customers to receive their books as fast as we could serve. We are also launching a 48-hour delivery to Klang Valley for customers who purchase books from BookXcess Online,” said Andrew Yap, Co- Founder of BookXcess.
