Press Release 1 - textbookrental.ca launch
 
textbookrental.ca to save Canadian students money

textbookrental.ca is a new startup created by recent graduates and current students to help with the rising cost of textbooks. Students can save over 65% on new and pre-owned textbooks. textbookrental.ca has observed the growth in the textbook rental market in the USA and produced a fresh and efficient website tailored for the Canadian marketplace.

Toronto, On. July 1, 2010 - textbookrental.ca is gearing up for a strong launch in the upcoming fall semester. Marketing materials have been distributed and students have signed up at schools across the country with textbookrental.ca's ambassador program.

"Our mission is to make education more affordable for students and their parents" said Michael Stock, developer of textbookrental.ca and a 2010 graduate of Schulich Business School. "By providing new or used textbooks, flexible rental periods, and a simple return process, students can rent books at lower costs without having to purchase them at extortionate prices. They can literally save hundreds of dollars each semester."

Similar websites in the United States claim to have provided savings to students in excess of $200 million.

"textbookrental.ca is committed to keeping prices low and investing in our website and business processes to deliver the best shopping experience to our customers," Stock confirmed.

Students wanting to earn extra funds or widen their resume' can sign up for the ambassador program. They receive promotional materials to distribute and can be as creative as they wish as part of the dynamic marketing team.

textbookrental.ca founders

Stock, has been a web developer for the last 10 years and has successfully built and managed his own and 3rd party websites in his spare time. Once the concepts of textbookrental.ca materialized he approached Gershon Hurwitz, 30, who grew up in the same Johannesburg neighborhood and now lives in Toronto, where he is involved in Venture Capital. Together the two investigated and tweaked the business plan into what it is today.

"Michael is a brilliant young man and I think textbookrental.ca will provide a valuable service to Canadian Students. We have done our research, and when we look at this it was a first for Canada and a first for Canadian Universities. We hope textbookrental.ca goes from strength to strength and that Michael's dream is realized".

When a buyer uses an ambassador's code the buyer saves $3.00 per book and the ambassador receives a $6.00 credit that can be withdrawn in cash or used on textbookrental.ca.
