Cedar Springs Christian Book Stores
Cedar Springs Christian Book Stores began in October 1976 as a single, small Christian Book Store in the Cedar Springs Shopping Center in
Cedar Springs, Tennessee. The 1600 square foot facility was staffed by it's owners, Curtis and Lois McGinnis, together with the store's first
employees - Evelyn Sutherland (Curtis' sister) and Diane Parker (former music director at Grace Baptist Church).
