POPULAR IMM Has A Closing Sale Till 18 Jul

When it comes to bookstores, no name is closer to Singaporeans’ hearts than POPULAR. For residents of Jurong East, the outlet at IMM has been their go-to spot for over 2 decades.

Unfortunately, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and POPULAR’s IMM branch will soon be no more.

But before its departure, loyal customers can bid the outlet 1 last goodbye at its clearance sale, which has up to 90% off almost everything in-store.

A huge presence in Jurong East since 1995

Lifelong Westies would know that Jurong East has had several POPULAR outlets throughout its history, starting with the one at Jurong East Interchange, which opened in 1993.

The 14,000 sq. ft. megastore right under the MRT tracks became a meeting point for many then, back when mobile phones were rare luxuries.

Just 2 years later, a second outlet opened close by at IMM mall, providing more options for shoppers in the area.

Sadly, POPULAR Jurong East eventually closed its doors in 2011. POPULAR IMM then became the new place for families to create fond memories together as they headed there for stationery runs.

After 3 rounds of renovation and 26 illustrious years, POPULAR IMM is moving out, but not without a parting sale first.

Gadgets & IT products at up to 75% off

Knowing the wide variety of items POPULAR has, there’s no denying that it’s the one-stop-shop for all your WFH needs.

From tech gadgets to stationery, the sale will allow you to stock up on the essentials that’ll make you the most efficient worker.

These video conference-friendly wireless earbuds by thecoopidea will ensure that you pay full attention to online meetings or classes.

BEANS AIR True Wireless Earbuds – $49.90 (U.P. $129.90)

Since they support single earbud connection and phone calls, you can be on standby if mum calls upon you to run a quick errand.

But if you’re certain of uninterrupted work hours at home, then you should make yourself comfortable with an extra fan or 2 for better air circulation.

Greentech Pureflow QT7 Bladeless Fan (left) – $89 (U.P. $139) & Aztech 16” Stand Fan With Remote (right) – $39 (U.P. $109)

You can’t have a #1 fan without a few extras, right? While you’re getting that for yourself, perhaps you could grab 1 or 2 more for your parents so they too can enjoy a cooler home.

With up to 75% off gadgets and IT products, you’ll be the productive employee all bosses dream of.

3 for $10 stationery to write off the rest of the year

No matter how high-tech you may be, you can never go completely without stationery, which is why the 3 for $10 promo at POPULAR IMM is heaven-sent.


At that price, you can hoard all the highlighters, staplers, and correction tapes that would make your secondary school self proud.

Tagging important sections of your work documents will also be easier when you have only the stickiest tabs and post-its from 3M.


Young parents would want to add some arts and craft tools like colour pencils, crayons, and glue for kiddos to unleash their creativity while you’re busy hustling.


When you’ve picked a little something for everyone, you’ll be ready to take on the rest of the year and write off any mounting tasks in a jiffy.

$1 deals to get more bang for your buck

Adding all those items to your basket will surely rack up a hefty bill, which thankfully comes with extra perks at POPULAR IMM.

If you’ve planned your spree between 16-18 Jul, a minimum spend of $60 will earn you the chance to score selected books and stationery for only $1.

Members who hit that amount will even get an extra 10% off on regular-priced items — non-members can enjoy the discount too if they spend at least $70 in a single receipt.
