About Hive

Hive is a revolutionary, independent initiative exclusively available for bricks-and-mortar bookshops. Founded by Gardners in 2011, hive continues to proudly support hundreds of UK independent booksellers.

  • Hive is a consumer-facing retail website hive.co.uk selling books, eBooks, DVD & Blu-ray, music, stationery and more.

  • Hive is the first eCommerce network that gives independent bookshops a visible presence online, access to a whole new revenue stream and encourages in-store collection to keep high-street shops buzzing – all for free!

  • Hive is home to a network of 300+ independent retailers from across the UK’s bookselling community. These bookshops receive a percentage of every sale made through the website.

  • Hive is not about driving your existing customers to the internet. It simply offers a way for independent bookshops to reach those shoppers who are already buying online.
