Financial Benchmarking for Maximizing Your Children’s Books Space & Profitability

Understanding financial benchmarks within your children’s bookstore or children’s departments can help you maximize space, optimize non-book gifts and sidelines, improve profitability, and more. This session is for children’s-only bookstores or general bookstores with a children’s department. Attendees will also learn more about ABACUS — how to participate, how to use this important tool for your business, and why it’s so important for children’s bookstores to be counted in this data.

Panelists: Cynthia Compton, 4 Kids Books & Toys (Zionsville, IN); PK Sindwani, ABA (White Plains, NY)
