From November 3, 2014, through January 16, 2015, HarperCollins is offering a Holiday Express Shipping program for independent bookstores in the U.S. for all HarperCollins and HarperCollins Christian Publishing titles. All qualifying orders from participating stores received by 1:00 p.m. (EST) will ship out the next business day and will be expedited. Most orders will be delivered within two business days as long as the books are in stock and the account is in good credit standing.
All reorders of HarperCollins and HarperCollins Christian Publishing titles will be eligible for the program. New title releases will continue to ship by their established on-sale dates.
“We are pleased to provide this service to the Indie channel in the busiest time of year in order to help them have HarperCollins titles in stock and meet the demands of their customers,” said Brian Grogan, senior vice president of sales for HarperCollins.
ABA CEO Oren Teicher said, “We are delighted that our friends at HarperCollins are adopting an express shipping program for the holidays. Publisher innovations such as this are helping independent booksellers sell more books and are contributing to profitability during the busiest time of year for most stores. Thank you, Harper!”
