About the Book People
For over 20 years, the Book People’s reputation as the UK’s leading direct bookseller has grown and grown. The company is well known for selling quality books at amazing discounts – often over 75% cheaper than the publisher’s price.
Our independent distributors cover the whole country and sell books directly to people in their places of work. From schools and hospitals to offices and small businesses, our distributors drop off a carefully chosen selection of bestselling titles and then return a week later to collect the samples and deliver orders straight to the customer. This popular method of bookselling reaches markets untouched by high street chains and leads to our distributors becoming highly valued members of their local community.
As a distributor you would run your business independently, but with the support of the Book People’s experienced field managers and the recognition factor of our established brand. You would receive full training and be encouraged to take on staff to help your business to grow. Unlike a traditional franchise, you would not have to provide upfront investment or be left with unsold stock.
Finally, joining the Book People means you would become part of a family firm that looks after its distributors and, with regular competitions and get-togethers, you’ll enjoy the fun side of this vibrant company too!
