While operating separate sales, marketing and publicity teams, PGC benefits from the experience and expertise of Raincoast’s operational system, including credit, customer service, warehousing, and supply chain management. Raincoast runs a warehouse system capable of swiftly delivering over 20,000 new titles to over 2500 bookstores and other specialty retailers across Canada’s 5 time zones.
