(SPOT.ph) The COVID-19 pandemic, which is still ongoing in most parts of the world, changed the way we shop. In the last two years, pabili systems, courier services, and online shopping became go-to choices as people avoided heading to crowded malls. National Book Store, for their part, also started a new and convenient way of shopping for books and office supplies. If you're a Laking National customer, you can just text selected National Book Store (NBS) branches for your order during the day and pick them up anytime (even before or after store hours).
This is made possible through StorageX Smart Locker, which allows store staff to place your order inside the storage and have a pickup code sent to you through text within 24 hours. You can use this code to open the locker and claim your orders between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily. Pick-up is only free for the first 24 hours after the time of purchase. If you intend to get your package after the 24-hour window, you will be charged a locker fee of P40.
To order, just drop a message through text or Viber to these National Book Store branches during store hours:
- NBS Cubao Superbranch - 0917-631-1374 / 0917-811-5094
- NBS Quad Alpha Centrum - 0927-515-6674
- NBS Quezon Avenue - 0917-828-1797
- Art Bar Quezon Avenue - 0927-515-6686
National Book Store also intends to expand this service by allowing you to shop online and pick up your orders at the Cubao Superbranch.
