Booktopia has been around for a number of years now and in this time it has grown to be the most popular Australian online book seller. The company is now at a point where it is now looking to grow it’s inventory of offerings and will look to move into the DVD, music, greeting cards, games and magazine space.
Booktopia has grown it’s numbers across the whole business include it’s staff. The company now employs over 70 people and has achieved sales of over 27 million in the 2013 financial year. This figure is a massive increase on it’s 20.9 million achieved last year. The company has had a consistent record of profitable years and looks like it will continue this trend.
The company is now looking for bigger premises for it’s every expanding inventory and is looking for locations around Sydney for a site.
There are whispers that over the next couple of years Amazon will look to make a stronger move into the Australian market by opening a local retail business. Booktopia is hoping that Australian loyalty will keep it’s customers returning.
