The Bible says in I Corinthians 12:27 “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you are a part of it.” We all have a part to play within the family of Christ no matter what outlet we choose. It’s really about spreading the Gospel. Choose the Gospel and let God take care of the rest.
The Traditional Christian Store
The traditional Christian store has been around for quite some time now. A brick and mortar structure built to supply the needs of an ever increasing Christian market place. It started with a few items needed for clergy and grew into a multi-billion dollar industry. With items for the new born Christian Baby along with a line of Christian Clothes for the entire family. Yes, the industry has grown and with it the ability to purchase those items in a number of different outlets.
Christian Store Outlet
An Christian store outlet is a brick and mortar retail store in which the manufacturer sell their stock directly to the public. In modern usage, outlet stores are typically manufacturer-branded stores. The invention of the outlet store is often credited to Harold Alfond, founder of the Dexter Shoe Company. To which I am very familiar having grown up in the great State of Maine.
Online Christian Store
An online Christian store or an Christian store online. Which ever you prefer, is the latest in commerce. This method of purchasing generally caters to the middle and upper classes. One must have a computer, a credit or debit card or a bank account. If one or any of these items are not present you are not able to online shop. Shopping this way has opened up an array of innovation for both the Christian and secular markets.
All Major Christian Brands now have a presence on the Web and with the movement of social integration into e-commerce it’s just a matter of time before all purchases are made right on your social network. Commerce is changing fast. With lots of prayer and wisdom we will survive.
