The book retail industry is changing. With the rise of the internet and e-books, the stationary book trade is confronted with a precarious situation, which results in numerous business closures and insolvencies year after year. The big retailers Thalia, Mayersche, Hugendubel and Co. have now started to reduce the number of their branches after years of expansion policy. The remaining businesses are evolving more and more from bookstores to media houses, which increasingly offer DVDs, toys and other non-book items. Among other things, this is intended to counter the competition from online retailers such as Amazon, where you can buy almost "everything".
One aspect of the redesign of the bookstores are the information terminals, which are intended to offer customers more interactivity. They offer the customer reading samples, further product information or information about the exact location of a product within the branch and are often linked to the retailer's website. Multi-channel marketing is the name of the concept with which retailers want to reach and serve “hybrid customers” on all levels or “channels”. The electronics giant MediaSaturn has been successfully using the terminals from the Göttingen company xplace, which has had great international success in this area and also supplies Thalia, for years. This book by Alexander Mostafa examines how consumers in the book trade react to the information terminals at the point of sale (POS). Do the devices actually help to attract more book buyers to the shop “around the corner” or are the investments simply in vain?
In the Bonn Thalia branch (Metropol), a "flagship store" of the bookstore chain Thalia, a customer survey was carried out and then empirically examined with SPSS with regard to the acceptance of the terminals. The work gives an overview of the situation in the book trade industry, provides insights into the motives of consumers to purchase the respective product in stationary trade or on the Internet and also gives an outlook on possible further developments in the book shops, with a special focus on interactive elements such as the POS -terminals.
