Closing the books on The Good Book

thegoodbook2.jpgMore news from the east edge of The Junction: In a little brown house kitty-corner from the 42nd/Oregon development plan we posted about yesterday, The Good Book is closing after five years in business. Co-owner Shirley Geller sent us the photo at left and asked us to let you all know this:

West Seattle’s only Christian store is going out of business. Everything is on sale – including the fixtures. We need to sell everything by October 15th. Our hours are 10 to 4 everyday except Sundays. Telephone 206-935-1722. Address: corner of 42nd SW and SW Oregon St.

Shirley says a chiropractor moving from another WS location will be taking over the space.

    my first office in West Seattle was in the basement of this house….from 1998 to 2001. It was a great location, and we were sorry to leave. I’m sure Shirley is, too.

    Shirley can’t sell enough bibles to stay in business but the line at Bakery Nouveau consistently stretches out the door. I think it’s pretty clear where people are going to find God in West Seattle these days. In patisserie we trust!

    Quick, somebody call Mark Driscoll for the sale!

    Well, Christopher, unless people are eating those Bibles they aren’t going to need to replace them as often as the pastries, ya know.

Sorry, comment time is over.
