Non-Profit Option Fails to Save Store
On April 11th we reported the pending closure of Faithful Servant Books in Moncton, NB. Then, just ten days later, on April 21st, we reported the store planned to restructure as a not-for-profit organization.
Yesterday morning, an announcement on the store’s Facebook page gave the sad news that even with restructuring, the store will close late January.
STORE CLOSING FOR FINAL TIME.
Last year, as the store faced difficult times, we transitioned to a Not-For-Profit company, and made several changes in an effort to continue the business.
Unfortunately, sales have continued to decline for several reasons and we must now close the store for good.
It has truly been a pleasure and a privilege to serve our Christian family and friends, and our Lord Jesus Christ over the past 3 ½ years. We will sincerely miss you all…
It’s sad to hear a story like this after it looked like the store closing situation had leveled off over the summer, but these are tough times for all retailers. We wish the staff of Faithful Servant God’s best in the future.
