I received an email from Hal at the BookMark telling me that he is putting the BookMark on the market. He basically said he wanted to start using his hammock more and that the BookMark’s business had grown to the point he thought it needed younger management.
He said it had grown from being a $30 -$50 a day business to what he called a $300 – $400 a day monster.
He currently has a couple of interested parties, one of which is interested in a partnership with someone who would run the day to day management of the business.
Hal said his current inventory is approximately 20,000 books and that he has all the sales data since 2004, showing steady growth.
The BookMark has been written about in every Panama Guide book I have seen and has the largest selection of English books in Panama in my estimation.
If you have an interest in this business opportunity, contact Harold (Hal) De Mun. You can reach him at the following email address. email@example.com. I hope that whoever picks up this business will continue what Hal created. He has kept me in reading material since I move to Panama.
Good luck Hal and I will miss seeing you on my trips up to Dolega to get more books.
