Waterstones To Expand Their Children's Books Range Over The Summer

Waterstones is set to grow its children's range and space in stores over the summer independent publishers have heard at one of the most well-attended annual Independent Publishers Guild conferences to date. Speaking at a session on 'How to Work with Waterstones', at the IPG annual conference in Oxfordshire on Friday (9th March), range buying manager Sarah Clarke said children's books had seen growth in the industry lately and as a result the chain stores would be investing in the area over the next few months and into summer. Clarke said: "I think children's is a definitely an area of the business where we have seen growth over the last two-three years and where the market is most stable. We will continue to grow children's space significantly through quite a lot of stores throughout the summer. We want to give it more space and give booksellers more training in that department."
