Foyles will be supplying more US-published books directly from the States through an expansion of their partnership with Ingram, which already includes use of the company's print-on-demand services.
The bookseller will receive title data from Ingram to populate www.foyles.co.uk, which will "significantly increase the selection offered to Foyles customers", according to the retailer. It currently offers more than 13 million books and 200,000 e-books. Ingram will fulfill orders direct to www.foyles.co.uk customers, from this month.
Foyles c.e.o. Sam Husain said: "At Foyles, we pride ourselves on our title selection and the high-quality service we provide to our customers. As we position our company for the future, working with Ingram provides us with the tools we need now, as well as the security of knowing we'll have the next generation of data and distribution solutions to meet the demand of readers in the years to come.
"Working with Ingram will only serve to strengthen our overall offering and the service we provide to our customers."
Ingram Content Group chief commercial officer Shawn Everson said: "We are pleased to have a role in Foyles' evolving model—working together more books will reach more readers and that benefits the entire industry."
