The team opened the doors of the new local bookstore on Friday morning last week and were thrilled to see so many people pop in to show their support and to peruse the wide selection of books, games and gifts. The feedback from many has been how wonderful it is to finally have a book shop in Forbes.
Nothing beats entering a cosy store to the smell of new books, surveying titles, browsing synopsis and taking on a recommendation from a friendly staff member. The team at The Book Dispensary are very thankful for all of the community’s input, ideas and support.
Business Manager, Debbie Prior, and her team of recruits, have been working around the clock to get the shelves stocked ahead of Christmas and have lots more in store for 2021. “The Book Dispensary will launch a Community Give Back program in the New Year, with a percentage of sales going to a chosen local charity. A loyalty program will also be available so the avid readers of Forbes and the surrounding areas can benefit from buying local. We also plan to set up a book group and host evening events around specific topics or themes,” aid Debbie Prior, “This is just the beginning.”
While Debbie has done her best to provide a range of all of the books the Forbes community would like to read, she appreciates that there will be lots of titles and authors that will need to be ordered in. So, do not hesitate to ask Debbie and her team in-store or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
“This is just phase one of our bookstore business plan, so if you have any ideas to suggest for us to incorporate in the store, drop by and let us know, or email us at email@example.com. Thanks so much for your support.”
