Angus & Robertson Franchisees Join Collins.

Further to recent announcements on the winding up of Angus & Robertson’s parent, Redgroup, the future for A&R franchisees has become a little clearer with 20 franchisees signing up with Collins Booksellers. Others are expected to follow.
An interesting twist in the deal is that Collins have announced plans to expand their online presence with a percentage of online sales, including e-books, going to bricks and mortar Collins Booksellers based on customers in their assigned territory.
The Angus & Robertson saga is just another example of retailers thinking outside the square as they adjust to a rapidly changing retail environment.
