I frequented Saeed Book Bank in 70's and 80's from my school to college days in Peshawar. Saeed Qureshi an amiable person from behind the desk of well stocked book store never made me feel uncomfortable while I browsed books for quite some time without buying them for want of money. His book store in Islamabad had become like another Foyels of London. News of his demise has saddened me. May Saeed Qureshi rest in peace.
Good things never go unnoticed. Saeed Book Bank, Pakistan’s leading bookselling store has been featured in The New York Times (NYT). The article published by the prestigious American daily revealed some exciting facts about the bookstore while unfolding its history and story to success.
Spread across 42,000 square feet in a modern three-storied building, Saeed Book Bank has a large inventory of books and journals on a wide range of subjects. Known for its diversity across the world, the book bank showcases 200,000 titles on its shelves and houses more than four million books in its five warehouses.
Very sad to hear this, may he RIP. First we lost Saeed Book Bank in Peshawar and now this great person. I hope they re-open it soon in Peshawar.
