TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Celebrated bookstore chain Eslite will close three more outlets before the 2020 following six closures earlier in the year, reports said Wednesday (Aug. 19).

In May, Eslite shuttered the world’s first 24-hour bookshop in Taipei City, transferring its round-the-clock opening hours to the third floor of its much larger and newer outlet in the fashionable Xinyi District.

The three stores facing closure over the next few months are located in Taipei Railway Station, the Taipei district of Neihu, and a Sogo department store in Taoyuan's Zhongli District, CNA reported.

The Zhongli shop, located on one of the top floors of the department store, was scheduled to close on Aug. 23, the Taipei Railway Station shop before the end of August; and the Donghu store in Neihu in late October. Even after the closures, book lovers passing through the train station will still have a larger store to visit in the underground “K” area, the company said.
