Even in the changing world of e-books and online sales they continue to thrive. Anderson’s credit this mostly to their staff, who are known for their expertise of literature and their ability to help customers find just the right books. They also offer a winning combination of unique gift and toy products that can be found nowhere else.
In addition to the products in their store, Anderson’s bookshops runs hundreds of author signing events a year, including a wide variety of celebrity, best selling, debut, and local authors. They also offer a range of programs, including in-house book groups for all ages, and two annual literature conferences. Their ABC Bookfair division has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support local schools over the years.
