The Bookstore as Consigment Shop for Small Business

This year we’ve done articles about stores going non-profit, pop-up stores, stores which added fair trade giftware displays, and the conversion of one store into a combination bookstore and events centre. Gone are the days when  simply adding a coffee shop was considered a radical departure from the long-established paradigm of books, Bibles, cards and giftware.

In our own store, space is very limited, but we’re tossing out an idea to see if anyone is interested. The store would get a piece of each sale, but more importantly would be the foot traffic generated. Participants would need to supply a strategy of what they would be doing to direct customers to the store.

Let me know if you’ve tried something similar, or your general thoughts on how this could work.
