In 1924, Mr Chou Sing Chu established Cheng Hing Company in Singapore, which subsequently evolved into World Book Company and Popular Book Company, and expanded to places like Malaysia and Indonesia. As one of the major bookstores in the 20th century, Mr Chou’s bookstores had accompanied many through their growing up years. To celebrate Popular Holdings’ 95th anniversary in 2019, Chou Sing Chu Foundation (CSCF) has started a collection drive to gather all information and related items about Mr Chou and his bookstores.
