About the Business

VIVA BOOKS is a unique and successful business due to its blend of products and innovation.

Far from being just a bookstore, VIVA BOOKS provides the community, both local and holiday makers, with a huge selection of games, quality stationery, cards and gifts which are sourced locally and internationally. Quality and uniqueness are the hallmarks of the brands and products stocked.

Although a bookstore at its core, and the largest in the Southwest, VIVA BOOKS fulfills both local and holiday makers entertainment needs either by way of books which range from fiction through to instructional, or via Busselton’s largest range of games, fulfilling the games gap left by the departing Toyworld some four years ago.

The buyer will benefit immediately through;

  • strong local foot traffic due to prime location,
  • economic benefits of strong regional growth,
  • a strong local independent brand and associated goodwill,
  • multi supply chains and benefits of a co-operative buying group, &
  • immediate opportunity for growth.

It is our opinion that the business of VIVA BOOKS offers an exceptional opportunity for an
owner-operator to live and work in a fast-growing region.


VIVA BOOKS location is on the main street and on the busiest corner in Busselton. Diagonally opposite the city’s largest newsagent and across from numerous cafes and Sports Power and banks, the site is perfect for retailing, particularly being on the major corner of the city. Being on this corner offers high visual exposure to two of the busiest and main streets as well as ensuring major traffic both on foot and vehicular.

This enables the store to expose its products from the inside out with over 100 metres of floor to ceiling display windows. The response from window displays is always positive in terms of comments and purchases.


100 metres of window displays for passing vehicle and foot traffic, along with their website and social media are the prominent avenues for marketing at present.
