Through what has been a difficult week for LifeWay employees and customers, it has truly been encouraging to see so many nice messages on social media about how LifeWay Christian Stores have served people over the years. We know you’re sad LifeWay Stores are closing; we’re sad, too. Closing our brick-and-mortar stores was a difficult decision. We know how much faithful ministry takes place in our stores, but keeping them open is simply no longer a viable option. Please know this: we are NOT going out of business. LifeWay will continue to serve you and churches around the world with a wide variety of books, Bibles, Bible studies, events, and other trustworthy resources, just like we always have, and in new ways well into the future. Thank you for your heart for our stores. We can’t respond to everyone who comments, but know that we’re grateful. • • • • #LifeWay #LifeWayStores
The company announced the closures in March, but states that they will still sell merchandise online.
The Columbus location is currently liquidating inventory, and plans to close by the beginning of November.
