Exclusive Books has launched an app for book lovers, putting all things bookish right at its customers’ fingertips.
The app sends users special offers, alerts them to in-store promotions and activities, and allows Exclusive Books’ Fanatics members to link their membership and carry around a virtual Fanatics card in their mobile devices.
“Some might think that bookshops and technology are anathema to each other,” says Exclusive Books CEO Benjamin Trisk. “But people who read books invariably also have smartphones, and our app is meant to ensure that the pleasure of reading physical books is not forgotten, even as one’s attention turns to a glowing screen.”
The app is currently available in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play store. Between now and 30 September, users who download the app receive a R50 coupon good for their next purchase at Exclusive Books.
