Agenda Textbooks Service forms part of the Agenda Bookshop retail brand. In 2012, agendatextbooks.com, a custom-built website offering customers an online textbook ordering service, was launched. In 2013 we expanded the service to also include textbooks for 6th Form students, and in 2014 we further expanded to also offer University textbooks, thus enabling us to be able to offer all levels of service, including the on-going convenience that online ordering and shopping provides customers.
The way the website works is that buyers select a school and grade / level before being presented with the relevant booklist supplied by their school. They can browse through the list and select the books they need, as well as additional services such as textbook covering before placing their order. Payment is then made upon collection of the books from the nearest of 11 Agenda Bookshop / 8 Till Late / WHSmith collection points.
The debut of the service saw thousands of people registering and ordering on the website and even more students and parents are expected to make the switch to ordering online in the coming years.
