INTERNET BUSINESS NEWS-(C)1995-2005 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Bookseller Foyles has announced that it has acquired the parent company of Internet-based bookstores The Bookplace.com and Computerbooks.co.uk, Bookplace Limited.

According to reports, Foyles initially plans to operate the Bookplace websites independently from its own online shop. It will eventually develop a strategy "to bring them closer without losing their individual customer appeal", said Publishing News.

The Bookplace not only sells to online visitors but also handles online sales for a range of publishers, schools and businesses, while Computerbooks.co.uk has links with distributor Computer Bookshops.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
