In London, one-hour book delivery from local, independent stores
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Talk to any book lover and they will be able to boast with affinity the great offerings at their favorite independent bookstores, listing off special havens in the hidden nooks of the city in which they live. But as giants like Amazon engulf the industry with their difficult-to-refuse convenience and lower-than-anyone price, these beloved, local small businesses are facing very real pressures. We have already seen a browser plugin that hijacks Amazon’s site to tell customers the best book price from their local store, and now offering even more convenience is Near St. The searchable database enables Londoners to enter in their post code and the book or author they’re looking for, then order an item for instant collection, or — get this — one-hour delivery.
