From 12 October 2023, the Mondadori Bookstore in Andria in the province of Barletta-Andria-Trani (BT) will change location within the same city in order to renew its space and offerings and give it a complete makeover.
The new 220-square-metre bookstore boasts a layout and furnishings that enhance Mondadori Store’s wide range of offerings, which focus on books and services that meet customers’ needs, thanks also to new reading experiences and a calendar full of events.
To kick off the season of events, the Mondadori Bookstore in Andria on 16 October will host the author who has sold 15 million copies, Jeffery Deaver, who will meet readers to present his latest book, “Hunting Season (Tempo di caccia)”, published by Rizzoli.
The bookstore reopens just a stone’s throw away from the old premises, in a pedestrian area bustling with important businesses. With its 25,000 titles – from best sellers to the great classics, including fiction, non-fiction and miscellaneous – and a wide assortment of new music, K-POP, stationery, gadgets, gift boxes and gift cards, the bookshop is a hub for the local community. The Mondadori Bookstore in Andria also boasts an area designed specifically for young readers: “We are Junior“, a completely new department where even the youngest children can find a rich offering of educational games and picture books. The store also houses an extensive selection of comics in the “Just Comics” section, with manga, superhero comics and graphic novels.
“I’m happy to carry on the project of my father, who opened his first independent bookstore in 1972,” said Mondadori Store franchisee Giovanni D’Avanzo. “Since 2010, I’ve felt the need to reorganise the bookstore in a more modern way. That’s how I decided to entrust myself to Mondadori Store, the most extensive network of bookstores in Italy, to offer my customers a more attractive and up-to-date bookstore, which would become a hub and cultural stronghold in the country, in line with the renewal, enhancement and development strategy of the Mondadori Store network”, said the franchisee.
The Mondadori Bookstore in Andria also has an online presence. Customers may contact the store for updates on all activities and events through its Facebook and Instagram pages, and use the Mondadoristore.it digital services to check the availability of a book from a catalogue of more than 1 million titles, order it and pick it up at the store.
Mondadori Store is the largest network of bookstores in Italy, a cultural organisation that operates nationwide with more than 500 stores, across large cities and small towns alike, and online through the e-commerce website Mondadoristore.it and the book club formula. In addition to books, its core offer, it organises fun experiences, events and multi-channel services, reaching more than 20 million customers each year.
