Torquay Books

Surf Coast
Barwon South West Region
Category:   Book Retailing
Established in 2004, there was no bookshop in a town of 10,000 residents. In 14 years, the bookshop has expanded to cater to the needs of a rapidly growing region. 

The key features of the business:

• As an Independent bookshop, Torquay Books has the freedom to stock what it believes their customers want. Finding the right book is the aim. Staff are well read and can make recommendations. Customers come looking for the regular catalogue, available in hard copy and digital format. 

• Knowledgeable staff, good customer service and a light airy environment with plenty of room ensures customers stay longer to browse. Sourcing ""hard to find"" titles and placing special customer orders is a vital part of the business. 

• The large workroom enables staff to pack tubs of new children's titles ready for delivery to schools. 

• Author events, with plans to do more, are a regular feature. Customers support the idea of having a bookshop in the community. ""Shop local “and ""Love your Bookshop Day"" are very well supported events. 

• Torquay has a strong sense of community and Torquay Books support many community events. Customers come to Torquay Books because they know they will find just what they want, and they love sharing their favorite reads with staff and other customers too.
