Van Schaik Bookstore, one of South Africa’s leading academic book retailer brands opened its second bookstore in the northern district of Namibia in August this year at Hifikepunye Pohamba campus.

This new branch opened nearly six years after the company opened its first store in Namibia. The Hifikepuye Pohamba campus, named after the current president of Namibia, enjoys the presence of a leading academic bookseller which has the capacity, competence and experience of nearly a century in serving tertiary students and lecturers. Van Schaik Bookstore stocks prescribed books and stationery for the students at the education and engineering faculties of the Oshakati campus of the University of Namibia.

In addition to the service to students, the presence of Van Schaik will make it much easier for lecturers to order prescribed books for their students. Lecturers will be offered the opportunity to provide the title, author and ISBN of the prescribed book (s) of their choice and the anticipated number of students for the respective courses. Van Schaik will source the books from any supplier or publisher globally at competitive prices to ensure affordable retail prices to the student community.

 

The opening of the second store in Namibia complements the goals of Van Schaik to support the eradication of illiteracy in Africa by making study material accessible to all students by its network of stores and online facilities. ‘The need to provide this service was long recognized by Van Schaik and after careful consideration and due diligence we feel timing is perfect for Van Schaik. We are honoured to be in a position to serve the nation of Namibia with more facilities and we are looking forward to make use of our extensive experience to make teaching and learning easier and affordable’ comments Stephan Erasmus, MD Van Schaik Bookstore. The store will also assist UNISA students to get hold of their books. Students and lecturers can visit the store Monday to Friday between 08h00 – 17h00 and Saturdays between 08h00 – 13h00. Jacobus Gairiseb is the bookstore manager.

It has a network of 57 stores, a direct sales unit assisting non-traditional academic institutions, a library division serving public and institutional libraries, and an online store. The company has been in the book industry since 1914 and is part of the Avusa group, one of the leading media houses in South Africa that owns leading newspapers like the Sunday Times, Sowetan, Business Day and other well-known brands.

Making a difference on World Book and Copyright Day 2015

04-05-2015 01:11:29 pm
Reading is fundamental for children. It helps them to expand their vocabulary, stimulates their imagination and above all expands their knowledge on various issues. World Book and Copyright Day is celebrated on 23 April annually and every year Van Schaik Bookstore aims to make a difference by inviting learners from disadvantaged communities or with special needs around the country to participate in activities to embrace a love for books. Van Schaik’s aim is to introduce reading as fun and not a chore. We introduce learners to the wonderful world of books by utilizing staff or special guests to read to them out of the most fascinating story books. These activities are done either at the selected bookstores or schools. The Van Schaik Bookstores that participated this year were Soweto, Grahamstown, Long Street in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Stellenbosch, Rondebosch, Parow, University of the Free State, Pietermaritzburg and Hatfield.
