This business sells 2nd hand books. The range of books are across the board. From day to day reading to educational books. The customer base therefore consists of your story reader to students at school or university.
The books are mainly bought from customers at a price, i.e. they sell a book to the store and buy another book or several. Pricing structure is well explained and profitability is good.

Clients either donate books or exchange books. No money are paid out to clients who exchange books. Credit/ discount is given to these customers on there new purchases.
