BA launches “Find Your Local Bookshop” button for publishers

As part of the Bookseller Association’s Keep Books on the High Street campaign, friends and partners in the book trade are being encouraged to help support bookshops by offering consumers the choice of shopping with their local bookseller, whether on the high street or on their website.

The trade body has created a Find Your Local Bookshop button, which anyone is free to use anywhere on their website.  When linked with the URL http://www.booksellers.org.uk/Search-Tools/Bookshop-search.aspx – it will take website users to the BA bookshop search page, where they can search the over 3500 outlets in BA membership.  BA members range from single independents in market towns, to campus bookstores, through Christian specialists, to large national bookselling chains and supermarkets.  Consumers can search for All BA members, Independents Only and/or Chain and Independent Booksellers – and can then decide whether to buy online or visit their community bookshop.
