FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) — A local bookstore is teaming up with a major wholesaler to sell books online.
Andrea Kristina's Bookstore & Kafé, at 218 W. Main St. in downtown Farmington, is selling books through a website backed by wholesaler Baker & Taylor.
The bookstore and restaurant receives revenue from any books bought through Andrea Kristina's website at andreakristinasbookstorekafe.com.
The books are shipped from Reno, Nev., and delivered to the customer's door in about three days.
"I make the same profit whether they buy here or online," said Claudia Anderson, bookseller at Andrea Kristina's.
The site also sells e-books along with movies on DVD and music — items not sold in the brick-and-mortar store.
"It increases my inventory reach by a factor of not hundreds, but thousands," Anderson said.
