In the UK, more than 500 independent bookstores have closed in the last 10 years due to competition with supermarkets, ebooks and online megastores such as Amazon. We recently saw the indies of NYC fighting back with CityShelf — a co-operative platform which, collectively, aims to give Amazon and Barnes and Noble a run for their money. Now, a chrome extension called Bookindy could get customers back into the UK’s independent bookstores too, by hijacking Amazon’s own site and letting browsing customers know their best price from bookstores close to them.
