-The Wirth Family

In 1986 Jim and Linda Wirth were called by God to open a Christian store in Lockport, NY. They already owned an old Victorian house in the city of Lockport that was being used as a two-unit apartment. Since the building was in a secondary business district on the main road and the lower tenant just left, it made sense to put the store there. After about 6 months of preparation the store was ready and in April, 1987 they opened for business. For the first couple of years Linda was the sole employee and took a wage of $1 an hour. Everything else they made was re-invested into the store.

In October 1992 their son Sean started working there full-time and gradually became the store manager. In 2003 Sean started a website for the store, In December of 2005 Sean and his wife Erin bought the business and had it incorporated.

Today Linda works as the book keeper and "brick and mortar" manager. Jim helps from time to time by packing orders and working on the building. Their other son, Rev. Chad A. Wirth works part-time in customer service and in purchasing. Their daughter, Angela, works on the web-site at home. We have seen a lot of changes in the Christian bookstore industry through the years and are grateful for the opportunity to serve the church for many years to come.
