Independent Bookstore Day is Saturday, April 28, 2018.
Order deadline is Friday, February 2, 2018.
Eligibility and participation: All current dues-paying members of a regional Independent Bookseller’s Association who run a brick-and-mortar store are eligible to participate in IBD. By ordering, each store is agreeing to the “Rules of Participation” listed on the order form.
Each participating store must order at least 15 pieces total (15 of one item, 5 each of three items, or any other combination) from the IBD catalog. We will make every effort to fulfill all quantities ordered, but we can’t guarantee every amount and some orders may be reduced if supplies are limited. Bookstores will be invoiced for what they actually receive. IBD T-shirts & totes DO NOT count toward this total.
Ordering: All orders must be placed online at www.indiebookstoreday.com by February 2, 2018. All orders are non-returnable and cannot be canceled or changed after February 2, 2018.
Distribution and discounts: All distribution will be via Ingram. Stores must have an account in good standing. All items are non-returnable and include free freight. Discounts of at least 45% apply to all IBD items.
Invoicing: Ingram will handle all invoicing.
Shipping: Items will be shipped by April 15, 2018.
Lay-Down Date: No exclusive items may be held, reserved, sold in-store or online until April 28, 2018. It is our hope that most items will sell out on that date and we suggest you order accordingly. Stores may continue to sell items in store after IBD. Stores can sell the items on their own websites beginning May 8, 2018. Do NOT sell items on third party websites such as eBay or Abe Books.
Stores may display IBD items as soon as they are received!
