23 years of dedication to education

Twenty-three years ago, Zambian business-man Mr.Bharat Nayee founded one of Zambia’s best-known book and stationery shop, and is still committed to expanding throughout the nation.

Founded in 1991, Bookworld’s first shop was opened in Cairo Road, Lusaka’s main central business district. It is fair to say that the company’s growth is mirrored with the growth of the country, currently operating nine stores across the country.

The company, initially known for its stationery stock still remains a strong competitor in the market. A winner of the 2013 Diamond Arrow Award from the Professional Management Review (PMR) of South Africa for being the No.1 Stationery suppliers, Managing Director Mr.Nayee reiterates how “We are very pleased to have won this award as we want people to know that we also offer stationary at very affordable prices.” With a vision to be Zambia’s leading book and stationery seller, Bookworld provides customers with the widest choice, great value and expert advice from a passionate team.

The future is bright; reflected by the company’s motto “…Where Education is Our Priority” — keeping it at the front.

Bookworld, the future Amazon of Zambia

First Zambian Owned Company That Enables Customer To Transact Online 

The “online Zambian alternative to Amazon” promises to be an e-tailer of books and stationery, which will provide its customers with wider access. The benefit is to the customer, who can remotely order what they need without having to be present in a shop.

Although, Bookworld Ltd has nine stores across Zambia and intends to expand its reach, it aims to provide access to customers across Zambia and Africa through its online launch. This medium will bring the bookseller closer to their customers in the supply chain by being able to sell books that are ordered on demand.

When entering the e-commerce world Bookworld Ltd is partnering with MTN & Airtel money to offer mobile money transfers to customers. It will also partner with Barclays Bank to facilitate transactions for people who have visa and master card. Delivery will be done in conjunction with Post Courier who promises delivery within 2-3 working days.

Bookworld Ltd’s online service will provide customers with an around the clock service. Customers will be able to browse through the items at their leisure whenever and wherever they have Internet access.
