In 1983, District 11’s Trading and General Service Company (former Phuong Nam Cultural Corporation) opened a series of stores on Ba Thang Hai Street which specialized in cultural products such as books, newspapers, discs, stationery, etc. At that time, in the context of the difficult subsidized economy, although cultural products were necessary, they were rare and unattractive. However, the series of stores received a strong support from customers in the area and neighbor districts.
On the occasion of new school year 2009 – 2010, Phuong Nam Cultural Corporation will officially start the biggest promotional program of the year with the name of “Phương Nam cùng bạn đến trường” (Phuong Nam goes to school with you) in its nationwide 25-bookstore system from June 20 to August 20, 2009.
From May 1st, 2009 to May 31th, 2009, when customers buy merchandises with the bill value more than VND 100,000 at Phuong Nam Bookstores, they will get coupon for using in Phuong Nam Bookstores nationwide.

In order to meet the increasing demand of its customers, Phuong Nam is giving discount for books when its customers come and buy stuffs at Phuong Nam bookstores in Ho Chi Minh City. With the promotional program, Phuong Nam�s customers can buy books at 10% to 70% off from marked price.
