Dear Friend of the Episcopal Bookstore,
After 22 years of service to Episcopalians and other spiritually-minded people as owners of The Episcopal Bookstore, we count our many blessings, give thanks for the many wonderful people we have met along the way, and realize that it is time for us to retire and begin a new chapter in our lives. Now that we’ve made that decision, we’re hoping that you – or someone you know – will want to see The Episcopal Bookstore remain at the core of our faith community.
It has been a joy and an honor to serve you over the years; and it’s only been because of your support that The Episcopal Bookstore has flourished. Even now, in this age of electronic this and digital that, we have not only survived, but are well-positioned to ensure that all of the resources upon which you have come to depend will remain at the forefront of our business.
The key ingredients that will contribute to the success of a new owner are all in place: a loyal customer base, a dedicated, hard-working staff, the technology tools to remain current and relevant, and a stellar reputation that attracts customers from near and far. Besides, we’re willing to stay on for a short while as well, serving in an advisory role to ensure a smooth transition.
All it takes is someone who shares our passion for the bookstore as a personal ministry, someone who genuinely loves people and wants to be of service, and who can lead a team of employees with good judgment and business sense. The reason that we’re contacting you directly is that we appreciate and value you as a customer of The Episcopal Bookstore, and hope that you might know someone – even a family member ready for a change of pace – who would enjoy being the owner of a vibrant and fulfilling business that could easily be relocated to just about any community with a strong Episcopal base.
If you or someone you know would like to learn more about the opportunity to become The Episcopal Bookstore’s new owner, please contact our friends and colleagues at the Bookstore Training Group of Paz & Associates at (904) 277-2664 or by email at MKaufman@PazBookBiz.com. They can not only let you know more about our business and its potential, but also can provide you with the necessary training and education to succeed as a bookstore owner.
Thank you so much for your continued patronage and for your interest in seeing The Episcopal Bookstore serve more generations for years to come.
Nancy & John Marshall
