Established in 2006, Pimp My Book (Pty) Ltd is a chain of student focused retail stores. The store specialises in products that students need to succeed academically such as textbooks, electronics, stationery and accessories.

It was founded by Mpodumo Doubada in a dormitory room where he saw a gap for second-hand textbooks on UCT's campus.

After a week or so I had so much cash from selling text books! I’ve never seen that kind of money before!

Pimp My Book was founded on the belief that no student should struggle with their studies because they cannot afford the tools which they need to succeed.

Pimp My Book also provides the students with a buy back service for used textbooks and other products.

The store is now available nationwide at major universities.
