Whether you're a book-lover - or just know a good thing when you see it - this excellent award-winning business could be just what you're after.
That Book Place is located in the growth area of Flagstone/Yarrabillba, next to a coffee shop in the local shopping centre.
Part of Logan City - and therefore within easy reach of Brisbane and the Gold Coast - this area is part of an ongoing urban development plan that will see around 20,000 new homes built.
That Book Place provides a 'best of both worlds' shopping experience for customers, with both new and used books available for sale, as well as a book exchange to keep stock coming in. Overflow stock from the shop is held in a nearby storage unit and is included in the sale.
Customers come not only for the excellent book collection and good old fashioned service, but also for the ambience, with the store featuring a turn of the 19th century theme, with gramophones, old-styled wooden bookshelves and vintage décor.
Now in its sixth year of operation, the business opens 6 days a week. There's certainly potential in expanding opening hours or considering Sunday trading.
At a glance:
• Entire catalogue is electronically data-based with books in sections for easy location
• Data base is Internet-ready for a new owner to take online, further extending earning potential
• Electronic POS and computer system included in the sale
This is a great lifestyle business - especially if you love books - offered on a Walk In Walk Out basis, with as much support as required from the current owners to enable a smooth transition, including personal introduction to regular customers.
