Our mission is to equip, edify, and minister to the Church and society through retailing of products that promote Christian and family values.
History of Cedar Springs Christian Stores, Inc.:
Cedar Springs Christian Bookstore was founded in October 1976 by Curtis and Lois McGinnis in Knoxville, Tennessee. In October 1995 the store moved to its current address at 504 North Peters Road. It occupies a 28,000 sq. ft. building and is one of the largest independently owned Christian retail stores in the nation.
Another location of Cedar Springs Christian Stores was opened on November 2001, occupying 7000 sq. ft. at 6704 Clinton Highway in Crown Point Plaza.
These two locations comprise the Cedar Springs Christian Stores, Inc. We are members of CBA (Christian Booksellers Association) which has 5,000 stores. CBA sponsors an International Convention each year that draws over 12,000 attendees for a week of buying, workshops, concerts and fellowship. Curtis served on the CBA Board of Directors from 1987-1993 and again in 1996.
CEDAR SPRINGS CHRISTIAN STORE WAS VOTED THE NATIONAL BOOKSTORE OF THE YEAR IN 1994 and 2001.
We are a Christian store, primarily selling Bibles, Christian books, music, videos, computer software, educational materials, church resources, framed art, greeting cards, collectibles and gifts for all occasions. We know that through our ministry the Bibles, Christian literature and music that have left our stores have met the needs of people not only in our community but also throughout the world and we pray will continue to do so.
