Everything Under The Son, 407 McKinley St., recently held a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting to celebrate its expansion and remodeling.
In 1992, Mark and Krista Ball opened the doors to Everything Under the Son. Their philosophy was simple: Bring the word of God into the home through high quality, unique faith based products. What started out as a resource for Christian gifts, music and books has evolved into a place where people are invited to gather and meet friends.
Out of the desire to minister to each and every person who enters the store came the recent addition of quiet corners found throughout the store for patrons to sit and enjoy a book and even reflect on their daily devotions. The Christian book and gift store also expanded to include a worship area for larger groups wishing to gather. Groups are invited to use the new space for bible groups, singing and praise.
“We really wanted to create several welcoming spaces within our store for people to come in and have that time with God ... to read His words in peace, while enjoying a warm cup of coffee, if they like,” said Carrie Miller, store manager.
The remodel falls on the tails of a recent retail expansion as well.
“We now carry a variety of dip mixes, soups and other perishable food items which can be found in our coffee shop area. We’ve added several new clothing items, all inspired by the Christian faith, and we continue to grow our selection of books and Bibles to cater to every need,” Miller said.
The staff at Everything Under the Son has over 30 years in combined experience and is always ready to help answer any questions or make recommendations based off the needs of their customers.
“With graduation, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, and wedding season upon us, we hope people come and explore the many selections we have for gifts. Be it a book, a piece of jewelry or a keepsake, we think we’ve got what the customer is looking for,” Miller added.
Everything Under the Son is located at 407 McKinley Street. Store hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays,
