Endless Shores Books
Founded in 2006, Endless Shores Books is conveniently located in the quaint Annapolis Valley community of Bridgetown, Nova Scotia. Dubbed “The Friendly Town”, it is a vibrant, full service community of approximately 1,000 residents boasting a new P-12 school. The facility is currently rented monthly (since Dec. 2009); and the landlord is amenable to maintaining a Book Store tenant. The space (pictured below) offers 1400 sq. ft. of retail space on two levels, clean, well lit, and ventilated. Heating is included. U-Haul and Canpar franchises are currently part of the operation and there is potential for addition of a Coffee Shop or other related retail venture.
The owner has assembled a discerned collection of over 28,000 cataloged and thousands more un-cataloged titles covering all traditional categories. The catalogued items are entered in a versatile POS booksellers’ software with an accurate “look-up” database system that both supports on-line retailing and facilitates easy retrieval within the store.
The operation is fully-equipped with inventory software system, signage, 83 sturdy & well-organized shelving units; Web Site, Google and Facebook Business Accounts, three online seller accounts; approximately 350 CDs, 500 DVDs, 400 Albums, and thousands of books not yet cataloged. The founder is willing to provide transition mentoring for the first year.
