What makes this business successful

The business is run by two owner-operators who are passionate about their business and literature in general. One owner-operator can easily run the business and look to employ casuals as needed. 

Peak times are over the holiday season when the holiday homeowners, tourists and travellers descend on the town, hungry for leisure and ready to enjoy a good book or two. 

Customers come from mostly out of town and often travel over on the ferry or make the drive from the Great Ocean Road regions. Many tourists will visit the bookstore whether they be from interstate, overseas or from farther afield within Victoria. Book lovers will travel the distance in search of a special find. Regulars in the town will often seek out crime novels, poetry, and religious books.

Many of the books within the store are collectible items and are rare finds. This is great for customers who love to collect books and for people who may be looking for nostalgic books. 

If you have a passion for literature, and small business, with a dream and a strong desire to live in a beautiful coastal town that is backed by major tourism and peaks in visitors over holiday periods, then enquire now.
