This bookshop was opened in July 2006. Summer sales are strong in the region, as the town has to be passed through in order to get to Wilsons Promontory, plus the whole of the South Gippsland area is a holiday destination. Throughout the year there are always visitors to the area and there is strong community support for the bookshop.
Foster’s Little Bookshop is currently owned by two booklovers and through running the business the owners have discovered you can learn about the industry through the assistance of the Australian Booksellers Association and publishers contacts. The main focus of training in the business is the point of sale system, and knowing what customers are buying. Customers like the feel of the bookshop and the community appreciates that there is a bookshop in their town.
After eight years the owners are ready to explore other business pursuits.
