Our local bookshop is joining the "Rebel Alliance to Amazon’s Empire"

Our friendly neighbourhood bookshop is ready to take on the giants of the business by joining the “Rebel Alliance to Amazon’s Empire”. 

Harbour Bookshop

Harbour Bookshop, Mill Street, Kingsbridge, has joined Bookshop.org, an online bookshop with a mission to financially support local, independent bookshops. It means you can buy books online while also supporting your bricks and mortar bookshop.  

Bookshop.org hopes to play Rebel Alliance to Amazon’s Empire

Find Harbour Bookshop on Bookshop.org and the bookshop and author receive the full profit. Your order will also contribute to an earnings pool that will be evenly distributed among independent bookshops. The organisation say: “We hope that Bookshop.org can help strengthen the fragile ecosystem around bookselling and keep local bookshops as an integral part of our culture and communities.”

Bookshop.org is an amazing B-Corp - a corporation dedicated to the public good – and by design, they give away more than 75% of their profit margin to bookshops, publications, authors and others who they say “make up the thriving, inspirational culture around books”.

 Harbour Bookshop also has its own website HERE where you can find special offers, gift wrapping, book subscriptions, competitions, giveaways and goodies. 

Lockdown won’t stop them either, with click and collect up and running, so at least you can while away the days trapped in your house with a good book, the best escape from the madness that is this period in time.

Harbour Bookshop is currently operating a doorway service due to the Covid-19 pandemic but is open for click and collect, as well as postal orders worldwide, 10am-4pm, Monday to Saturday.

You can visit Harbour Bookshop online www.harbourbookshop.co.uk, call 01548 857233 or meet them at 2 Mill Street, Kingsbridge, TQ7 1ED.
