Welcome to our shop!
We appreciate you visiting our website and would encourage you to buy your books from an independent bookshop, rather than at large online retailers. Here are a few reasons why we think this is important.
According to the UK Booksellers' Association, an Independent Bookshop:
Is a Wealth Creator: Every £1 spent generates £1.91 in the local economy. All the bookshops like this contribute £1.9 billion to the UK economy.
Is a Jobs Creator: Indie bookshops contribute to the employment of 24,000 people in UK bookshops and support a further 22,000 jobs in the publishing industry.
Pays its Taxes: A bookshop like this pays its taxes in full. All Indie bookshops together contribute enough in taxes to pay the salaries of over 5,000 qualified nurses.
Is a Cultural Asset: A bookshop like this promotes local authors, champions reading for pleasure, works with the community and brings vitality to its High Street.
