Simon & Schuster is offering relief assistance to independent bookselling retailers that have been adversely affected by the ongoing wildfires in California. The assistance includes extensions on payments for booksellers who have had physical damage due to the wildfires or are otherwise negatively impacted.
"California's independent booksellers are a vital and important part of their communities," said Gary Urda, S&S senior v-p, sales. "These fires have caused both physical damage and loss of business to stores, and with this offer we look to assist our bookselling friends as they recover from these devastating circumstances."
S&S encourages booksellers to contact their sales representative or customer service representative for more information as to how to take advantage of this assistance.
