Retail / List of bookstore chains

List of bookstore chains

This is a list of bookstore chains with "brick-and-mortar" locations. In the United Kingdom, they are known as "bookshops" and "newsagents". In American English, they are called "bookstores" and "newsstands" (as they also carry newspapers and magazines). In British English, most promotional advertising of books typically use the phrase "available at good book shops", which is not used in American English (the phrase "available at local bookstores [or booksellers]" or similar is usually employed).

Some bookstore chains may either offer new books, second-hand books, or liquidated books.

In addition to paperback and hardback books, most large modern chains also sell videos, DVDs, audiobooks, radio dramas, and music CDs.
