Thursday, June 27, 2019 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM EDT

When your wallet is slim and margins are small, every penny counts. But there are little things that can be done every single day to boost a bookstore’s bottom line. Bookstore panelists who have effectively pinched a penny here and saved a penny there will teach attendees:

  • Where to look for savings
  • Small actions booksellers can take to impact overall savings and sales
