Lifeway Christian Store, 1009 Bower Parkway:   5 comments

Posted at 10:49 pm in closing









I did not know that Lifeway was the publishing arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, which obviously is not going anywhere. They are, however, unable to keep these stores open during the ongoing great-unretailing, and plan to close all 170 of them. The plan is to maintain an online presence, though how that will work out I don't know given that Amazon certainly lists religious books.

This storefront is in an odd little plaza that wants to be connected to the one behind it, but isn't, making access harder than it needs to be.

Somewhat ironically, this store moved here fairly recently, previously having been on the other side of Harbison Boulevard.

  1. I live in a little suburb outside Nashville, TN. called Brentwood. The Souther Baptist Covention HQ building was recently torn down and a new office building was built in its spot. Also, the Lifeway Building (AKA Draper Tower) in downtown Nashville was recently demolished.

    Lifeway IS closing all their retail locations.

  4. 5.11 is where all the high-speed, low-drag types get their tactical pants. :)
    The Bower Pkwy store location is already listed at 511tactical-dot-com/store-locator.

  5. So 5.11 took a portion of this space and earlier this week I encountered signage that Direct Tools Factory Outlet is going to be moving into the remainder of the space...
