At October Books, we have four part-time staff members, all the rest are volunteers. We are a small independent not-for-profit co-operative shop and we have a lot going against us: the competition of big chains, online retail and e-books, and the soaring rents on the high street.
Without your help, we can’t make ends meet! So if you want to keep a small friendly shop in business, you are welcome to lend a hand. And you will benefit too: you’ll gain experience in running a small ethical business and you’ll improve your office and retail skills and your CV.
