Retail Books - our commitment to you... is an online bookstore run in association with Inside Retail - for more than 30 years, Australia's primary source of retail industry news and commentary.

Our site is independently owned and operated from Australia by Octomedia Pty Ltd, publisher of Inside Retail, the annual Australian Retail Chain Directory, and the Australian Retail Outlook.

Inside Retail is committed to selecting relevant, interesting and useful books relating to the retail industry - and associated small business books to help retailers improve their skills and boost their bottom line.

We are committed to serving you professionally and promptly. If a book is showing on our website as in stock we will despatch your order within one working day once payment is confirmed. If it is not, we will contact you without delay and advise a new delivery time and give you the opportunity to choose between waiting for your order or having an immediate refund to the card you used to pay.

The books on our site are sourced from Australia and abroad. They cover retail disciplines such as visual merchandising, store design, branding, marketing, technology and shopping centre marketing. In addition to those we carry a growing stock of general business books which you might find hard to locate in a traditional bricks and mortar bookshop.

If there is a retail book you would like us to stock, then email us the details and we'll see what we can do. Retailbooks (at)

You can purchase a book from Retail Books in confidence:

* All transactions are securely and safely processed through eWay and your credit card details will not be stored or made available to third parties.
* Your order will be sold in Australian currency and despatched from within Australia – no more long waiting times or currency transaction issues associated with ordering books off-shore.
* Octomedia’s helpful staff are just a phone call away should you encounter difficulties navigating our website – or wishing to track progress of an order. Our telephone number is: 02 9901 1800.
* All books online are available for immediate delivery – unless we are swamped with sudden multiple orders and need to re-stock, in which case we’ll advise you promptly, as per our commitment above.
