November Bookshop of the Month

Bookshop of the Month - win a hamper!The Alligator's Mouth in Richmond is our Bookshop of the Month for their excellent bookshop profile and use of Caboodle to promote their upcoming events, from storytime to their junior comics club. They have won a luxury food hamper - congratulations!

Mark from The Alligator's Mouth says: "We're an independent children's bookshop, opened just over two years ago. Having an exciting and varied events programme is a hugely important part of what we do, not only for increasing footfall but for making our shop an enriching part of our local community. For us, Caboodle has provided a valuable platform for promoting events and increasing our visibility. The Caboodle website is beautifully organised, helping customers find offers and events near them with ease, so no wonder it attracts so much attention!"
