BookNet Canada presents: I opened a bookstore in the pandemic!

  • 27-Jan-2022
  • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join BookNet Canada as they present a panel of retailers, all of whom launched their bookstore during the pandemic, for a discussion of lessons learned. They’ll share what motivated them to start a bookstore and what it was like to open their doors, virtual and physical, during a pandemic. The panelists will also delve into how they establish themselves within their communities and how they forge relationships with their customers.

Peek behind the curtain of this new class of booksellers and hear how their expectations stacked up to the reality of this new bookselling ecosystem.
