CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Cokesbury bookstore at 612 Washington St. E. will close on Saturday, according to a sign in the shop window.
The Daily Mail reported Nov. 7 that the Christian bookstore was among 57 across the country slated for closure. The rise of online and catalog sales, decline of store sales and rising costs of sustaining store operations were cited as reasons for the business decision.
A sign in the store window says a 90 percent off sale is under way.
Patrons of the store are encouraged to go online at Cokesbury.com to shop or use the Cokesbury Call Center at 800-672-1989.
