Asheville, NC (PRWEB) November 22, 2005
Biblio.com, an online marketplace for used, rare, out-of-print, and hard-to-find books, has been listed in Internet Retailer’s 2006 Best of the Web—Top 50 Retailing Sites. Internet Retailer announces the list each year to, “represent retailers who know their customers, understand how the web fits into a retail strategy and continually improve online shopping.”
“We are pleased to recognize The Top 50 for 2006. They reflect the best of what retailers can do online,” says Kurt T. Peters, editor of Internet Retailer. “Retailers in our Top 50 aren’t necessarily the biggest, the most profitable or the best known—they are the sites that innovate to take online retailing to the next level.
Many things have contributed to the success of Biblio.com over the last 2 years. Biblio.com is one of the few sites in the used book arena that is maintaining transparency in the transactional process, so the customer knows who is really selling them the book they are interested in. Biblio has also made strides to provide a value to customers by insuring that the sellers and titles listed on their site are quality books shipped by reputable book dealers.
“We are quite proud to be named in this list with some of the best online retailers in the business,” says Kevin Donaldson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Biblio.com. “Our staff works literally everyday to improve the way customers interact with our web site and support staff. This is an intrinsic part of our business focus, and will remain so.”
Details of the Top 50 will be included in the December issue of Internet Retailer, which subscribers will receive around December 1st. They also will be sent to all IRNewsLink email newsletter subscribers on December 5th.
Biblio.com Inc. is now one of the leading sources for used, rare, out-of-print, and hard-to-find books in the world.
