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.

– Jeff Sloan
