Magrudy’s began trading in 1975, and quickly became a central part of UAE’s life. At first, selling mainly educational toys and school supplies, children’s books formed part of our very first offering.
By popular request, new categories were quickly added: mother and baby, cookery, fiction and so on. Magrudy’s has also built up an excellent distribution and wholesale arm, supplying key accounts in the UAE and further afield. We also actively work to encourage reading among nationals and residents alike, running books clubs for adults and children, inviting authors for signings, and working closely with local schools to promote reading as a path to knowledge.
