WJR Business Beat with Jeff Sloan: Bookshop.org (Episode 48)

On this morning’s WJR Business Beat, Jeff discusses Bookshop.org, a new online bookstore launched in January with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. While Amazon poses an incredible threat to local, independent bookstores, Bookshop.org, created by Andy Hunter, serves as a co-op of local bookstores selling online, all in a central portal.

In the era of the COVID-19 crisis, Bookshop.org gives independent bookstores a chance to do business, and with great results: a reported $50,000 in sales in January, $4.5 million in sales in March and growing.

“Andy Hunter is onto something and he’s certainly demonstrating the power of entrepreneurship as he helps save our beloved, local, independent bookstores. Great job, Andy. That’s the power of entrepreneurship right there.”

– Jeff Sloan
