Diversifying your Product Mix with Used and Remaindered Books (Bookseller Panel) 609, Level 6, Seattle Convention Center

Used and remaindered books provide an opportunity to improve a store’s cost of goods and grow sales while providing unique titles that add to discoverability. In the first part of this session, a panel of booksellers will discuss the art of buying and selling used and remaindered books. Attendees will then have the opportunity to join a breakout discussion on either subject. Led by the panelists, these discussions will be an excellent opportunity to ask questions and increase your knowledge of sourcing, evaluating, buying, displaying, and marketing used or remaindered books.

Speakers: Erin Ball, Third Place Books (Lake Forest Park, Washington); Gary Lovely, Prologue Bookshop (Columbus, Ohio); Kevin Ryan, Green Apple Books (San Francisco, California)
