Gandhi Bookstores were created in 1971; they are now one of the biggest bookstores chains in Mexico. After 40 years and more than 30 stores all over the country. The public that comes to the libraries is mostly conformed by students, teachers, young-adults, professionals, and everyone else that is interested by the culture and look for information or entertainment.


Gandhi Bookstores were founded in June 1971, by Mauricio Achar. He created the bookstore in the belief that a great amount of the country's problems were due to the lack of reading by its population. The name of the bookstore is because of Mahatma Gandhi and his influence; Achar wanted to do the same. The original store occupied 150 square meters, and was located at Miguel Ángel de Quevedo 128, south of Mexico City. Even though it was small, the store had a cafeteria of its own, where people would gather not just to read, but to have cultural activities like watching movies, theatre plays, listen to music, etc. These were the basic things that interested people into going more often to the bookstore.[1]


Today, there are 34 different Gandhi Bookstores; 17 are located within Mexico City and 17 in other parts of the country. One store is located inside El Palacio de Hierro in the country's capital, and more exist in select Walmart Supercenters.
