Haji Hashim Enterprise

Haji Hashim Enterprise is Singapore’s oldest bookstore, dating back to 1922. Its founder was the first to create complete textbooks for use in Malay schools and madrasahs after WWII.


Did you know? During war, the business sold homemade Hari Raya greeting cards that were popular with Malayan soldiers posted in Singapore.

Joo Chiat Complex, #01-1051 Singapore 420001 *note: the store is lining the perimeter of JCComplex, it’s not inside the complex!

Opening Hours: 9.30am – 8.30pm
