Store Transformation: Burry Bookstore
We’ve opened a bunch of stores from the ground up. Did you know that we also perform Walls of Books franchise conversions? We help bookstore owners revamp their operations, kick start sales, and bring new life into their bookshops. Enjoy this video documentary about the transformation that recently took place at Burry Bookstore in Hartsville, S.C.
Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance: Annual Meeting, 9/17-9/20
We saw and met a lot of authors this year at SIBA including Rick Bragg, Karen White, and Karin Slaughter.
Our very own Shane Gottwals led an informational session about “Buying Used Books Effectively.” He is frequently asked to speak at regional/national events. He is a go-to source for consulting related to the used bookstore trade. At SIBA, his goal was to illuminate the benefits of buying/trading used books. More and more new-book bookstores are seeing the advantages of offering their customers discounted options as well as a trade-in program.
