Buying & Selling: Buying Non-book for the Holidays

Buying & Selling: Buying Non-book for the Holidays (June 27, 2019)

Holiday gift buying is not a last-minute task, but how does a gift buyer not only source but anticipate what will be a popular gift six months down the road? In this session, bookstores that have a unique collection of non-book items will teach buyers:

  • The role seasonal non-book items play in holiday sales
  • Best practices for discovering the next “it” holiday gift
  • Efficiencies and systems for ordering and reordering, shipment scheduling, and storing holiday gift items
  • How to move, move, move items that may not be selling
