Shop Local Live Local All Year Long

The idea is simple: Stock up on great regional books all year long, and AdventureKEEN will donate 3% of your purchases to Binc and return 3% back to your store.

STEP 1 – Booksellers enroll in Shop Local for 2020.

STEP 2 – Booksellers stock up on AdventureKEEN titles (via PGW/INGRAM).

STEP 3 – Booksellers endeavor to make monthly inventory checks with reorders when needed (via PGW/INGRAM) and earn the usual profits. Our handy state Edelweiss catalogs help you find the best local books.

STEP 4 – Set up in-store displays to boost sales and inventory turn. (optional)

STEP 5 – AdventureKEEN will make a donation to Binc and issue individual store rebate checks, based on the store’s 2020 enrollment date, no later than March 1, 2021, after all store purchase records at PGW/INGRAM are tallied.
