Ready to embrace a new chapter in your life and work? Chapter House Books in beautiful Mornington may be the business you have been looking for as you seek to combine a coastal village lifestyle with a reliable income and pleasant working environment.

Located on the corner of famous Main Street and Barkly Street, Mornington the shop has serviced the town for over 23 years (14 years with the current owners). At Chapter House customers can find a range of quality reads that have been gathered and curated with care. Titles are grouped into a range of categories including general fiction, children, history, sci-fi and fantasy, new age and reference and listed alphabetically under authors' names.
 
The shop has accumulated its wide range of stock mostly via a book exchange system which provides customers with credits for books that in turn goes towards the purchase of new titles. Books are up to date and feature all the popular authors at very competitive prices. Books can also be purchased on-line via a clever and modern website and shopping cart ()

The business benefits from a reasonable rental price of $2973 (including GST) per month and minimal operating costs. The 80 square metre (approx.) building occupies a prominent corner light-filled position and features a reception, toilet and kitchenette with ample free public parking. All bookshelves and other shop equipment are included in the price along with a period of free training and assistance. Stock is estimated to be approximately $35,000.

The shop is open 6 days a week (Sunday closed) from 10am - 4pm and, apart from the summer months the shop usually only requires one person to operate. The business is currently being run by two partners who share the supervision on a weekly 2 day/4 day on and off basis, which allows for a good work/life balance.
