The Hive Network
Welcome to the website which allows you the best of both retail-ordering worlds!
The Hive Network is a radical new concept bringing the benefits of local high street retailing to the ease and pleasure of buying your books and DVDs on the internet.
Whilst everyone enjoys supporting the local bookshops that enrich our environment and bring variety and personality into our high streets, the convenience, range and 24-hour access of shopping online is an activity that many of us enjoy and take great pleasure in. Yet, having goods delivered when we may not be around to receive them does sometimes have its drawbacks… and let’s face it; the high street wouldn’t be as exciting or as colourful without your local independent bookshops.
That’s where the Hive Network comes to the rescue!
Flexible delivery options
We have brought hundreds of local independent bookshops from across the UK together on one easy-to-use website, enabling you to enjoy the best of both worlds when you go to buy your next book, eBook or DVD. We offer the flexibility to pick up your purchases from a Hive Network bookshop of your choice with FREE DELIVERY too!
That’s right - no cost to you for delivery of single items, no need to join clubs, or meet minimum order sizes, or spend over a set amount; just select your collection shop from the hundreds who have joined Hive throughout the UK at checkout and off you go. This way you can still immerse yourself in the experience of shopping online, and you get to see, visit and support your local bookshop too. The best of both worlds.
Alternatively you can choose to have your purchases delivered to your home, work or any other address in the UK for that matter, from just 75p per item or delivered for FREE if you order is over £15!
Supporting local retailers... perfect in today's environment!
Support your local high street by visiting the shops, meeting people, joining in the local community and reducing your carbon footprint on our environment by having fewer deliveries.
