Congratulations to Medina Books in Cowes, Isle of Wight who have been crowned Caboodle Bookshop of the Month for September. They have won a luxury hamper full of goodies for their excellent Caboodle profile and new offers such as their Isle of Wight Festival 50th anniversary book bundle and an update stating that they are now open 7 days a week!
Krissy from the bookshop says, “As a fairly new indie bookshop we find Caboodle offers us a fantastic opportunity to reach book loving customers that might not yet know about us or follow us on social media. It's a great way to spread the word about our special offers and latest news. Since reopening after the Covid lockdown we have been busier than ever with a lot of customers coming in and telling us they want to support their local independent shops on the high street rather than buying online. To be named Caboodle Bookshop of the month is fantastic and a lovely reward for all the hard work the team have been putting in over the last few months.”
Caboodle is your one-stop-shop for local marketing, helping you communicate with thousands of booklovers – for free! Here's how you could win next month's Bookshop of the Month award and hamper:
All offers will appear on the Caboodle, National Book Tokens, Independent Bookshop Week and Books Are My Bag websites, and are emailed to Caboodlers near your bookshop.
