Sad news for many keen readers – Book Depository will accept orders till April 26 and then close down for good.
Book Depository, owned by Amazon, did not reveal the motives behind the decision. However, its parent company has disclosed plans to cut 18,000 jobs in its service and book departments in 2023, which might be the reason.
The online book retailer has served its audience for over 20 years, providing a gigantic catalog of more than twenty million titles. Low prices, free worldwide shipping, and regular deals made Book Depository very popular with customers from more than 120 countries. So it’s a small wonder a huge number of people all over the world got very upset when the company announced its closure.
