Bookshop Chain Plans to Expand

Angus & Robertson, one of Australia's largest chain of bookshops, has announced plans to expand its nationwide network of 170 stores by adding another 45 over the next two years. It appears that A&R are positioning themselves as a general/discount bookseller, filling the gap between Borders and Dymocks at the top end, and KMart and other discount stores further down. It appears that, given the chain's current spread, that the additional stores are not aimed at solely expanding their geographical coverage.
