Good News Book Store closing its doors

| August 25, 2014

DSCN3891COSHOCTON – A business that has been on Main Street for 37 years will close its doors Saturday, Aug. 30.

“We’ve been saying a lot of goodbyes,” said Kathy McKee, manager of the Good News Book Store.

She has been with the store for almost 30 years and even worked there when it was at its previous location at 622 Main St. Irene Krall also has been with the store since its early days.

“I was manager for about 30 years, but never really left after I retired,” she said. “I can’t tell you how many times we’ve reached across the counter and held people’s hands and prayed with them.”

The store’s merchandise is currently 90 percent off, but a lot of items, like the Bibles are already all gone.

McKee and Krall are both hoping a new business will take the place of the Good News Book Store.

“God’s not finished with Main Street yet,” Krall said.
