HarperCollins Publishers recently announced a holiday express-shipping program for independent bookstores in the United States for all HarperCollins and HarperCollins Christian Publishing titles. The program begins Nov. 3, 2014, and runs through Jan. 16, 2015.
“We are pleased to provide this service to the indie channel in the busiest time of year in order to help them have HarperCollins titles in stock and meet the demands of their customers,” said Brian Grogan, senior vice president of sales for HarperCollins Publishers.
“We are equally thrilled to be able to offer this additional level of service to independent Christian retail,” said Tom Knight, senior vice president of sales for HarperCollins Christian Publishing. “It is our hope that this program will encourage independent retailers during the critical holiday selling season.”
Qualifying orders from participating stores received by 1 p.m. EST will ship the next business day and in most cases will be delivered within two business days, provided books are in stock and the account is in good credit standing.
All reorders are eligible for this program. New title laydowns will continue to ship by the established on-sale date for each title.
