‘How is business?’ is a question frequently asked by our customers. And our response is, ‘It’s tough but we are still here!’ These are challenging times for all booksellers and whilst the work continues to be hard, we are learning new and creative ways of working and are excited by the future.
Over the last two years Cornerstone has developed important partnerships with denominational networks, Christian organisations, schools and local churches. Regular customers know only too well the sight of boxes piling up in the corner of our coffee shop waiting to be delivered, collected or taken out to conferences.
External work is becoming a crucial part of our business, as is the selling of Christian books through our local
churches Bookshop-in-a-Box scheme. Internal development With the decline of Christian bookshops across the North people are travelling further to shop with us. Our website plays a crucial role in making us known and customers tell us they still like to see before they buy. We are encouraged by this trend and have important plans for internal development in 2014:
Expanding our best sellers i.e. Bibles
Making biography and fiction titles more accessible to customers downstairs
Developing an upstairs room into a brand new loan Resources Centre for opening in the Autumn.
Recruiting more volunteers to join the coffee shop team
There are lots of opportunities to get involved at Cornerstone.
Do speak with us if you would like to know more about volunteering.
