Cameron’s Bookstore to Close: Another Longtime Store Closing in a Major City

Cameron's Bookstore

Through their past work with the Canadian chapter of the Christian Booksellers’ Association, the Cameron family were more than just bookstore operators, they were advisers and friends to an entire industry. So this week’s announcement on the store website is more than just the closing of a single store, it is really the end of an era:

Dear Customers,

It is with deep regret that we inform you that we will be closing the store June 14th, 2014. We thank you for decades of wonderful customer interactions and many happy memories.

Fifty-two years ago Glen and Dorothy Cameron opened a small store in the basement of their home, founded on a dream that started when they were dating. The dream became a reality, and grew bigger than they could ever have imagined.

Times have changed as have our customers’ shopping habits. While we still consider the products that we sell to be life-shaping, the ‘Local Christian Bookstore’ is no longer the primary place to purchase them.

The plans for the next 3 months are exciting! We will be offering you the best selection of Christian resources ever – at outstanding prices.

Be sure to watch your email and home mailbox for some very special sales events. Our first big event is coming up April 24th with our Spring Warehouse Sale. We’ve purchased several skids of new products at deep discounts and it’s at this event that we’ll share more details of our Grand Finale Sale to follow!

Thank you for 52 years of business and friendship. We have loved being part of your lives and we look forward to connecting with you over these next 10 weeks.

Stuart Cameron and the entire staff and family

This means that so far in 2014, we’ve heard of the closing of three iconic stores in three major cities: Hull’s in Winnipeg after 97 years, Speelman’s in Toronto after 52 years, and now Cameron’s after 52 years.
