NEW YORK, Nov. 24 (UPI) — Independent U.S. booksellers are using an independent retail store discount holiday to kick off a retail discount week this year, an industry newsletter said.

“We love the message of thanking our customers for supporting independent businesses during the Thanksgiving holiday,” Libby Cowles, community relations manager for Maria’s Bookshop in Durango, Colo., told the cleverly named newsletter ShelfAwareness.

The Christian Science Monitor reported Saturday that sandwiched in between Black Friday, a big box store discount extravaganza, and Cyber Monday, the Internet retail attempt to not be left behind, is Small Business Saturday, a sort of “me-too,” for independent store owners.

With those shopper-friendly puzzle pieces in place, the American Booksellers Association decided to go with “Thanks for Shopping Indie,” a week-long discount prices event that celebrates stores that cater to browsing customers.
