In the 1980s, Tony Margolis, Bob Emfield and their wives mused about never leaving the beach. This led to the invention of a character named Tommy Bahama. By asking "What would Tommy wear?" and imagining the details of his life, they unwittingly created the springboard for a new brand and the Tommy Bahama Group, Inc. In 1991, Tony and Bob discussed their concept with Lucio Dalla Gasperina. From the outset, the three envisioned the kind of upscale casual apparel Tommy would wear: printed silk shirts and tailored pants for refined island living. They soon launched a collection of menswear that transported people to an island state of mind and celebrated the best part of the week - the weekend. Tommy Bahama has since become a total "island lifestyle" experience that includes men's and women's clothing and accessories, food, cocktails, home furnishings, beach gear and more. From days at the water's edge to elegant evenings out on the town, their guests are treated to subtle textures and refined finishes that are all carefully considered and meticulously crafted. Since 2003, the Tommy Bahama Group has been wholly owned by Oxford Industries, Inc., an international apparel design, sourcing and marketing company. Oxford's acquisition of Tommy Bahama gave the brand more exposure and the secure financial backing to grow. They share their values and respect their desire to maintain the unique culture of the brand. Tommy Bahama is committed to extending the relaxed, positive vibe of our brand into philanthropic efforts. Their primary areas of focus are cancer research, assistance for disadvantaged families and children, and the ethical treatment of animals. Their support of the Garden of Hope and Courage is an example of this commitment. Janet Emfield (wife of Bob) was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1990; she envisioned a peaceful garden in the midst of a sterile hospital setting. In 2004, the Garden of Hope and Courage Foundation became a reality. Its goals: to increase public awareness of breast cancer; to improve early detection and treatment; and to fund research. Since 1996, they've donated a percentage of sales from apparel and accessories designed specifically for this cause. They donate to hundreds of other organizations including Make-A-Wish Foundation®, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, United Way, American Heart Association, Gift of Life, Shane Victorino Foundation, Ryan House, Food Bank for New York City, Citymeals-on-Wheels, Olive Crest and the Humane Society. Their retail stores also provide community support by hosting events like Shop for a Cause, with a portion of the profits from the events going to local charities. And each of their restaurants sponsors annual golf tournaments to raise funds for the local non-profit organizations of their choice.

Domori S.p.A.'s head office is in None, just outside Turin, where the production plant is located. Since its founding in 1997, Domori has been a real revolution for the cocoa world. It was the first ever chocolate company to use only fine cacao, focusing on high quality. The first to produce chocolate with Criollo cacao, the rarest and most valuable ever. The first to control the supply chain right from the plantations in South and Central America and to have its own plantation, allowing it to recover the biodiversity of Criollo cacao in the field. Domori is also the first to rediscover and use an ancient and simple formula for chocolate, using just cocoa paste and sugar. The first to create a 100% pure Criollo bar. And, the first to create a Chocolate Tasting Code for discovering the infinite nuances of aromatic cocoa. Domori is now part of the Polo del Gusto, an Illy Group holding that gathers together all its non-coffee-related businesses. Apart from being a leading company in the production of the finest quality chocolate, Domori has become the Italian distributor of a collection of top-level products: ranging from Dammann Frères teas, to Agrimontana jams, and including fine Mastrojanni wines and Taittinger Champagne. In 2019, the company announced it had signed an agreement to acquire Prestat, one of the best-loved chocolate brands in the UK and supplier to the British Royal Family. The acquisition has provided Prestat with access to the exclusive raw materials used by Domori and to be able to integrate control of the entire value chain in its production, “from plant to truffle”. Owing to its innovative approach, focusing on ongoing research into excellence, Domori’s annual turnover now exceeds €20 m and its products are on sale in Italy and on the main foreign markets. As of 23 July 2020, Domori changed its company name to Domori S.p.A. and decided to become a Benefit Company. As a Benefit Company, the firm intends to work towards goals for the common good and to operate responsibly, sustainably and transparently in relation to people, communities, territories and the environment, cultural and social property and activities, organizations and associations and other stakeholders.

Reverb is the largest online marketplace dedicated to buying and selling new, used, and vintage musical instruments. Since launching in 2013, Reverb has grown into a vibrant community of buyers and sellers all over the world. By focusing on inspiring content, price transparency, musician-focused eCommerce tools, a music-savvy customer service team, and more, Reverb has created an online destination where the global music community can connect over the perfect piece of music gear. Reverb launched in 2013 as an online marketplace built for musicians by musicians. David Kalt—a former recording engineer turned tech entrepreneur—came up with the idea for Reverb shortly after purchasing a renowned Chicago guitar store and growing frustrated with the experience of buying and selling guitars online. The websites available were expensive, cumbersome, and not tailored to the needs of the music industry. He envisioned an online community where anyone in the world could buy and sell music gear easily and affordably. Today, buyers and sellers all over the world turn to Reverb for income, inspiration, and, of course, the perfect instrument. The marketplace makes it easy for anyone—from brick-and-mortar retailers, dealers of all sizes, and local music stores to individuals, collectors, rock stars—to buy and sell musical instruments. At any given time, the site has a wide variety of listings ranging from electric, acoustic, and bass guitars to accessories, pro audio gear, synthesizers, drums, DJ equipment, orchestra instruments, music-making software, and more. In 2019, Reverb became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Etsy—the global marketplace for unique and creative goods—and continues to operate as a standalone company.

From humble beginnings, Blackwell’s Bookshop has built a worldwide reputation for unrivalled customer service, specialist knowledge and a passion for book selling. We continue to be a fiercely independent family-owned, values led business, where putting our customers first is at the very heart of what we do. The first bookshop opened by a member of the Blackwell family was in Oxford, but was actually in 1846. We take the year of 1879 as our founding since it was on January 1st of that year that our bookshop on Broad Street, Oxford first opened its doors, and we have been trading continuously from there ever since. 1879 was the year that Thomas Edison created the first lightbulb, Broad Street was cobbled and, no doubt, filled with the sound of hooves clipping along it. Since then, we have grown to become more than just one bookshop, with a chain of 30 bookshops serving not only individual customers but also a host of libraries, universities, businesses and government departments. We employ over 500 staff across the country. The Oxford bookshop itself has grown; sideways, upwards and, most notably, underground. The Norrington Room was opened over fifty years ago and for many years was proudly listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the single largest room in the world selling books. The shop has garnered mentions in numerous books, employed booksellers who have gone on to be award-winning authors, featured in a variety of films, and been a haven for the bookish from all parts of the globe. Constructed under the supervision of Julian Blackwell in 1966, our vast basement is the academic heart of Blackwell's Bookshop. Named after Sir Arthur Norrington, then President of Trinity College, it is quite simply one of the world's greatest rooms of books and is an essential place to see if you are visiting Oxford. It was then the world's largest single display of books in one room, with 160,000 volumes on two-and-a-half miles of shelving. In 1995, Blackwell's became one of the first retailers to go online. We launched our website, as part of 'Barclay Square' – an online shopping mall – where you could virtually visit Blackwell's and other large retailers. This article stated that 'Credit card details can be used in these systems and shielded from cyber-space highwaymen.' In 1995, blackwell.co.uk became the first transactional online bookstore in the UK, giving people across the world access to over 150,000 titles. Our mission is to become the world’s most trusted bookseller and to change lives through reading and books.

Booktopia is Australia's largest bookstore, with over 150,000 items in stock, ready to ship, and access to over 6,000,000 titles. We ship books, ebooks, DVDs, stationery, ereaders, and audiobooks to every corner of Australia and New Zealand from our 27,500 sq. metre headquarters and Distribution Centres in Lidcombe, Sydney. In late 2020, we were listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX:BKG). We've always been an online-only store and do not have any physical stores. We've come a long way since 2004, when brothers Tony and Simon Nash, and their brother-in-law Steve Traurig started to sell books as a side project, on a budget of just $10 per day, working from 9pm to 2am most nights. It was a side hustle that quickly started growing. In 2006, we operated in 500sqm in Artarmon, by 2009 we had expanded to 2,000sqm in Lane Cove Industrial Park, adding another 2,000sqm in 2011. In 2014, we grew to 10,000sqm in our current Headquarters and Distribution Centre in Lidcombe, where we expanded to take up 14,000sqm. Now, we have added another distribution centre in Enfield, bringing our current total space to 27,500sqm. Our website has always been the heart of our business, and it has grown and developed over the years into a highly-awarded and well-regarded ecommerce business in the Australian corporate landscape. In addition to making it as easy as possible for Australians to discover and buy books, a blog was also incorporated into the site - it is now one of the most read book blogs in the country. In addition to this, we have a series of podcasts and video interviews with authors on our social media pages. Tony and Steve are still involved in Booktopia, and they've now been joined by over 210 staff members. We are now listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX:BKG), and are continuing to invest in expanding our operations, so that we can deliver even more books to customers in every corner of Australia and New Zealand. We have also launched our own distribution arm, Booktopia Publisher Services (BPS). Other retailers can now benefit from the growing number of books we distribute, and access trade discounts. In early 2020, we acquired the ecommerce arm of The Co-op Bookshop, after they went into voluntary administration. We kept their commitment to serving the needs of Australia's students and universities and have worked tirelessly to be the primary destination for textbooks in Australia. In order to meet Australians where they read at all times, we partnered with Rakuten Kobo to bring e-books and audiobooks to Australian readers, through our bespoke Booktopia by Rakuten Kobo app. And because we're just that passionate about books, we've also launched our own publishing imprint, Booktopia Editions, discovering, acquiring and publishing great books for Australian readers. As Booktopians, we pride ourselves on our passionate advocacy and support for Australian books, authors and publishing. Our staff are customer-focused (we like to say ‘customer obsessed') and empowered to grow our site and operations in creative and innovative ways. We spent over 16 years as a family-run business, and it's still something that is part of our DNA. We recognise the importance of work/life balance and are supportive of our diverse workforce. We're staffed by experts in buying, selling, shipping (and reading) books, and work tirelessly to ensure we have the best range on hand, and can find anything our customers want - from an obscure legal textbook for a university course, to the latest blockbuster for your book club. Being book lovers, we're always thrilled to meet new and established authors, who regularly visit our headquarters to sign books and create content with us. We know that there is always more to learn, more to do, and new ways we can grow. We will never rest on our laurels and will continue to do everything we can to be Australia's local bookstore. We are passionate about providing excellent customer service, from having a huge range of in-stock items and fast delivery, to having friendly and knowledgeable customer service representatives ready to help in our Sydney call centre, via live chat, emails and social media. We are extremely proud of our reputation among customers.

Located in London, Ontario, Attic Books is one of Canada's largest bookstores, making it a tourist destination. With a large and diverse stock of antique books, maps and prints, our shop appeals to a wide range of customers. We have been in business since 1976. Our services include appraisals, purchases, consultations and assistance with general care of books and paper collectibles. Proprietor Marvin Post is a member of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) and the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of Canada (ABAC). In 1976, Marvin Post opened his shop at 428 Richmond St., London, Ontario, on the third floor. His little bookstore fulfilled a personal dream, to be his own boss and indulge his love of beautiful books. Many loyal customers were made in those first few years, as Londoners began to discover the growing little bookstore hidden away in the Attic. One year later, Marvin moved his shop to 388 Clarence St., a few blocks away. Attic Books became a regular stop for downtown shoppers. However, in 1987, the Galleria Mall (now known as Citi Plaza) was about to be built, and the wrecking ball was set to destroy the building that Marvin occupied. So, he packed up his shop and moved to Parkhill, Ontario, where many of his regular customers drove out to see him. In 1996, the Mayor of London persuaded Marvin to reconsider downtown, so he purchased the property at 240 Dundas St. and moved the business back. Doing his own renovation work, Marvin refinished the floors, which were hidden by a grey nubby surface of indeterminate origin. The now revealed hardwood floors make our store as memorable as the ornate tin ceiling. The basement was opened up a few years later for discount books, and later the second floor opened, allowing us to expand the sections for more books to browse through.

Richard (“Dick”) Weatherford is a bookseller who loves old books and new technology. After teaching college for a number of years, he turned to selling antiquarian books via specialized catalogues from his home near Seattle. He soon realized that computer databases had a lot to offer the antiquarian book business. In 1982, he wrote a business plan for a company that would build an online database for antiquarian booksellers. He called the company Interloc because it would serve as an interlocutor (that's English professor for "go-between") to help sellers to locate hard-to-find books. Unfortunately, start-up capital was harder to find than a signed JD Salinger, in part because personal computers were still scarce, expensive, and difficult to connect. In 1991, Dick was hired by Faxon, a book and magazine subscription service firm, to salvage BookQuest, an early online database for antiquarian booksellers. BookQuest failed, but it taught Dick a lot, and it revived the idea of Interloc. Because computer use was growing exponentially, the idea seemed timely and Dick was able to raise nearly $50,000, mainly from booksellers who respected his thinking and vision. Interloc went live in 1993, prior to the widespread use of the world-wide web. Initially, Interloc was a database for professional booksellers only. It was not open to the public. Dick recruited Tom Sawyer, who in 1993 published Record Manager, the first desktop software for booksellers. The data standard that Tom developed for Record Manager, called UIEE, is still in widespread use today. Interloc enabled sellers to transfer files of book listings over modems using DOS-based computers. Interloc built the first system to match requests, or "wants" from customers with books available for sale. It was a pioneering system, and the small company became the first successful online service for booksellers. In 1997, Marty Manley asked an author friend how to find a copy of her book, which was out-of-print. Manley had what might politely be termed a non-standard resume: among other things, he had been a machinist and a leader of several labour unions, a McKinsey & Co. management consultant, a sought-after turnaround expert, and Assistant Secretary of Labour for Bill Clinton. Over dinner, the author suggested that Marty use Interloc to track down a copy of her book. Marty found the book and was immediately hooked on Interloc's rich content. He sought out Richard Weatherford and was soon introduced to him in an office at the top of San Francisco's highest skyscraper. Marty and Dick discussed how Interloc might become a company that could deliver the growing power of e-commerce to independent booksellers while delivering extraordinary selection to businesses and book lovers. They spent three weeks travelling and meeting with booksellers across the US to learn what was working and not working with the emerging world of online book selling. By the end of these travels, they had decided to create a new company out of Interloc. Thus, Alibris was born. Marty started the new company in California, where the first employees came to work in his house. From the beginning, Alibris brought several new approaches to online book selling. A partnership with independent, professional sellers. Marty and Dick decided early on that Alibris would be an at-risk partner, not a listing service. This approach attracted numerous independent sellers and now enables Alibris to offer over 150 million books for sale. Providing a marketplace selection to retail business partners. Alibris was determined to help other retailers deliver the vast selection of its seller network to their loyal customers, and thereby enable professional booksellers to reach business and library customers, not just consumers. Interloc had learned this lesson early by serving as the first supplier of out-of-print books to nearby Amazon.com. Specialized logistics. Many business customers required orders to be consolidated, repackaged, custom invoiced, or shipped overseas at low cost. By building sophisticated low-cost logistics capabilities from the start, Alibris would serve those customers and booksellers could enjoy the benefit of increased sales. Superior market intelligence. Because Alibris naturally collects a great deal of information about book buying and selling, the company came to be able to offer both customers and sellers essential market information. Today, Alibris knows which books sell and at what price. Alibris helps sellers continually update prices and makes sure that business customers get data for hard-to-find and used books that are as good as new. A great place for talented people to work. From the start, Alibris worked to attract and motivate talented people by encouraging initiative, respecting differences, and rewarding professionalism and results. Today, Alibris is a vibrant, independent marketplace operating in the worldwide media business: online sales, e-books, and used/out-of-print books, music, and movies. Alibris helps independent sellers find buyers through marketplace solutions and partnerships with scores of leading global media retailers, including eBay (US), and Hudson's Bay (Canada). Many, many people have made the Alibris journey possible. Alibris thrives thanks to the loyalty of millions of business and retail customers and an incredibly capable and dedicated business, technical, and support staff. Alibris continues to benefit from experienced investors who stood by the company in good times and bad. But the most exciting part of the Alibris story is still being written by our customers, sellers, staff, and investors. It is a story that will feature expansion of the services we provide our sellers, overseas growth, a vibrant movie, and music business, new forms of book purchasing and renting (for example, students renting textbooks), and new kinds of sellers who help Alibris connect people who love books, music, and movies with independent sellers from around the world.
