Bookplace Internet bookstores acquired by Foyles.
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.
