Power Books is the pioneer specialty bookstore in the Philippines that offers a wide selection of books catering to the needs of every book lover. It was founded on August 16, 1996 by Mia Licauco, granddaughter of Socorro Ramos of National Bookstore. The company is known for providing the best books on the market at the most competitive price, and has earned the distinction of being the first of its kind to provide its customers with the perfect mix of cozy reading ambiance, a coffee shop, and accessible books. After it opened its first branch in Arnaiz Avenue, Makati City, Powerbooks continues to expand and increase the depth and variety of their book catalog.
