Meet the Team

Mark Chapman is the longest running member of staff at the shop, unsurprising considering he is also the founder! Mark acts as general manager, owner and is an all-round encyclopedia of books and how to get hold of them. He specialises in tracking down difficult to find books. Mark works Monday to Saturday.

Keith is one of our long term shop workers. With a calm determination Keith’s area of expertise is stock taking – a task avoided by some of the other staff. From spending 30 years as an art teacher Keith is skilled at drawing and sketching and his illustrations can be seen dotted around the shop. Keith works Mondays and Tuesdays.

Stanley is the youngest member of staff and diligently works away. Fantastic with the customers, he is an expert at getting a job done with little help. As the son of a previous staff member you could say working at Paragon Books is in his blood! Stanley works Saturdays and during the school holidays.
