Booktopia wins ‘Smart Company’ top retailer award

Online bookseller Booktopia has won the top retailer award at the Smart Company Smart50 category awards.

Booktopia was chosen from a shortlist that also included: Noosa Chocolate, Factory, Adore Beauty, and Mountain Bikes Direct. The bookseller was also a finalist in the community award.

Booktopia came in 35th overall in the Smart50 list of the fastest-growing small businesses. Smart Company reports that ‘the store’s next big move will come in the form of product line expansions and more acquisitions, as the founders continue their quest to become the market leaders in the sector’.

The bookseller’s growth was attributed in part to its acquisition of Angus & Robertson/Bookworld in 2015. The company recorded 105.2% growth over the past three years.
