Designated book marketplace made available for booksellers

By M.ZOLJARGAL

A new building for book retailers opened last Friday, designated for previously scattered bookselling stalls next to Lion Bridge.
The booksellers used to operate in sub-standard conditions, until last year, when their businesses were temporarily halted by Ulaanbaatar administrators, awaiting the opening of the new building.
Ulaanbaatar City Governor E.Bat-Uul provided 128 million MNT from the city budget for the building’s construction completed by a domestic company.
The building is 36 meters long and nine meters wide with 57 stalls. It was connected to central heating, water and electricity network lines five times faster than average, according to plans by the project’s Mongolian engineer.
A lighting system has been fully set up around the building, and shelving allows for standard book storage as well as retail conditions for the benefit of booksellers and customers.
About 50 booksellers will resume their retail businesses in the building this week without paying any rental fees. They will be charged for only water, heating and electricity costs.
