Hachette Book Group is launching a program to assist independent bookstores in the U.S. and Canada. Components include elements to support stores recover from the impact of Covid-19 on their businesses, as well as elements to help in reopening and their ongoing business.
Alison Lazarus, executive v-p, director of sales, explained: "We know independent stores are grappling with a steep fall-off in business which has dramatically impacted their ability to pay staff and their bills. While they have worked to continue to serve their customers through curbside delivery, home delivery and online orders, their margins, their cash flow and their sales are nowhere near pre-pandemic levels. This program includes dating into 2021 for new orders, improved discount terms on current and future orders through 2020, a long-term timeline for stores to pay older invoices, and a freight offset credit for returning inventory that did not sell due to the pandemic. These terms are responding to business concerns that we have heard in discussions with the American Booksellers Association and our independent customers."
Lazarus emphasized that "the survival of independent stores is critical to our business, and to the communities that depend on these stores; these enhanced terms are one of the ways in which we, and the publishers we distribute... are working to ensure that independent stores survive and thrive."
Hachette's distribution clients include Abrams Books, Chronicle Books, Disney Book Group, Hachette UK, Kids Can Press, Lonely Planet, Moleskine, Octopus, Phaidon Press, Phoenix International, Quarto Publishing Group and Yen Press.
