Bookstore Development 

PBS is expanding! In addition to our bookstore role-based courses, we're adding courses that are deep-dives into individual topics, taught by industry experts.
Coming soon - Bookstore Year One, a year-long program for brand-new stores. Owners will be learning about one topic each month through recorded lectures, readings, and live discussions. We know the first year is challenging - let Bookstore Year One help guide you to get your new business launched on firm footing!
