Celebrate the Importance of Independent Bookstores on Amazon’s Prime Day

Posted By Linda-Marie Barrett, Wednesday, July 10, 2019

San Francisco’s Green Apple Books has created social media posts to bring attention to the value of indie bookstores on Amazon’s Prime Day, which begins Monday, July 15. Green Apple is encouraging all indie bookstores to make use of the posts, customizing with store photos that reflect the importance of shopping local and supporting community. 

  • “On this #PrimeDay, remember that Amazon won’t bring scores of authors to your community for FREE events each year. #ShopLocal” (with a photo from an event or of a famous author at the store)

  • “On this #PrimeDay, remember that Amazon won’t entertain your kids with a FREE drag queen story hour. #ShopLocal” (with a photo from recent event)

  • “On this #PrimeDay, remember that you can’t get engaged to your fellow booklover at Amazon. #ShopLocal” (with a photo of a couple that recently got engaged at the store)

  • “On this #PrimeDay, remember that Amazon won’t reinvest all its money in your neighborhood to keep local cafes, restaurants, services, and schools thriving. #ShopLocal” (with a photo of neighboring shops)

  • “On this #PrimeDay, remember that Amazon won’t donate a gift card to your school fund-raiser. #ShopLocal” (with a photo of envelopes to schools with the store’s return address)

  • “On this #PrimeDay, remember that Amazon employees aren’t represented by a union. #ShopLocal #UFCW #ShopUnion” (with a photo of the store’s collective bargaining agreement)

  • “On this #PrimeDay, remember that you never have to pay an annual fee for $.99 shipping at greenapplebooks.com #ShopLocal” (with a photo advertising 99-cent shipping on the store site)
