Literary-lovers will find the new shop in the Al Ferdous Complex

Dubai's The Bookworm has opened in Jumeirah

Great news for the little literary-lovers – Dubai favourite, The Bookworm, has opened a new shop in Jumeirah.

Previously, kiddos of all ages could grab their top reads from The Bookworm store in the Park N' Shop complex. 

But when it was knocked down last year all of the tenants, The Bookworm included, had to find new homes.

Luckily for Jumeirah residents, the children's book shop hasn't moved far away as the new store is located in the Al Ferdous Complex on Al Was Road in Al Safa One.

As well as an extensive range of books for keen readers, the brand-new shop also houses a treasure trove of puzzles, board games, educational kits, dressing-up clothes and a huge crafts section — all designed to inspire creativity and learning.

Book tokens and gift-wrapping are also available – birthday presents sorted!

While The Bookworm sold its range of products online through Eggs and Soldiers, co-founder Ruth Kiernan is delighted to have the new shop up and running.

"We are so excited to be able to welcome everyone back," Kiernan said.

"We’ve been busy behind the scenes (and the masks!) designing and preparing our new shop in the Al Ferdous Complex. Being able to continue online has been a wonderful short-term solution, but it is so important that we rebuild a physical sense of community again and a welcome destination for reading, community and tolerance," she added.
Daily 10am-8pm, Al Ferdous Complex, Al Was Road, Safa 1 and The Meadows Souk, Emirates Living, (04 394 5770).
