Mondadori Store opens a bookshop in Alessandria

Mondadori Store, the most extensive network of bookshops in Italy, is opening a new bookshop in Alessandria on Corso Roma, providing the public with a centre entirely dedicated to books, culture and entertainment on one of the city’s main streets.

The new Mondadori Bookstore — managed by booksellers Veronica and Matteo Fusetti — expands the already extensive network of Mondadori Stores in the area, in line with the network’s strategy of spreading culture and promoting reading in our free time, creating an interactive place to meet and a true cultural centre in one of the most important industrial and commercial areas of Piedmont.

‘For about 30 years, my sister and I have worked passionately as booksellers, with the conviction that culture should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their background,’ says Matteo Fusetti, a Mondadori Store franchisee. ‘Turning what you love into a profession is a privilege that should not be wasted, but rather put at the service of the public. We also like to think that anyone who comes into our bookshop can find something they weren’t expecting and be happily surprised,’ Fusetti says.

The new bookshop covers 200 square metres and offers a selection of 15,000 titles, from the great classics to best sellers, including fiction, non-fiction and other genres. Special attention is reserved for younger readers with the We are Junior format — which includes educational games and picture books to stimulate their imagination with the most engaging stories — and the department dedicated to manga and comics, Just Comic. The store also has areas dedicated to #BookTok, for new generations of readers, local publishing, stationery, toys, gift cards and gift boxes.

The Mondadori Bookstore in Alessandria also serves readers online: customers can keep up to date through the Facebook and Instagram pages. They can also contact the store through digital services to check if a book is available, order it and pick it up in store, choosing from a catalogue of over 1 million titles.

The new Mondadori Bookstore follows the plan to renew and develop Mondadori Store, the largest bookstore network in Italy, with more than 500 shops in cities and smaller towns. This cultural organisation is active throughout the country, online with the e-commerce site and the book club. In addition to books, its primary service, it also provides entertainment, events and multichannel services, reaching more than 20 million customers every year.
