A book store that's served East Tennessee for four decades is closing.

Cedar Springs Christian Store opened in West Knoxville 42 years ago. It sells Bibles, Christian literature, keepsakes and cards.

Over the years this space hosted authors and musicians and was a resource for churches and individuals across East Tennessee.

Curtis and Lois McGinnis say their customers have been a blessing -- but it's time to close.

"Well it's been in the making I think for several years. It's just harder to get the people in the store because the internet is so easy. We don't get the people in the store like we used to and if you don't get them in you can't make it," they say.

Cedar Springs Christian Store will sell everything in its current inventory, plus book deliveries already scheduled. So it could be several months before the store closes its doors for good.
