Year Business Established
Year Franchising Commenced
Collins Booksellers commenced operations in 1922 as a newsagency at 622 Collins Street Melbourne. In 1929, Frederick Henry (Harry) Slamen registered the name of Collins Book Depot when he opened two new branches at 95 Elizabeth Street and 361 Swanston Street in Melbourne. Collins Booksellers embarked an expansion program in Victoria in the 60’s and nationally in the 70’s during which time the franchising model was embraced. Other stores and outlets were progressively added to the network increasing its size and coverage across five states.
