When we first started Matchbook, my husband (Jamie) and I were thinking of opening a bookstore in NC. In preparation, I took a college business course, and he attended Paz & Associates' Bookstore Bootcamp in Florida. Though our collective path took a different turn - I started Matchbook, and Jamie went back to teaching English - the Bookstore Bootcamp remains my entry point into the indie bookselling world. So when Mark and Donna of Paz came to us 6 years later wanting to revamp their entire website, renaming and rebranding, and shifting their courses to an online model, it was a lovely full circle.
This was not a small undertaking, but after months of work, we are happy to provide them with a fully functional, bright, and user friendly site that will train booksellers for years to come.
