Jakarta, IO – A number of visitors queued to buy books and stationery at the Gunung Agung Shop, Kwitang, Central Jakarta, Tuesday (29/8).
Just before the closing of the bookstore, Gunung Agung carried out a clearance sales by giving out big discounts and promos to attract buyers starting from discounts for imported books and electronic devices.
The store’s HR manager Noor Fajar said the Kwitang branch would close when its stock has been cleared. The legendary bookstore chain is closing down because it can no longer sustain mounting loss from its operations.
PT GA Tiga Belas, the parent company, has closed down all the remaining branches.
