As you’ll know Christian bookshops across the country have been struggling to make ends meet, and many have closed or face closure. Because of the generosity of the founder of the Acorn Book and Toy Shop, our Christian bookshop has been able to survive due to a favourable lease arrangement, and will return!  Thursday 22nd September will be the last trading day before a temporary closure.

Fiona has been volunteering single-handedly for 2 years to serve you, our customers, and she has kept the shop afloat. However, our outgoings remain too high and so a temporary closure, refurbishment and relaunch with new systems and a revitalised volunteer base will seek to serve the city in a more financially viable way. Please do thank Fiona for all the investment she has made in keeping the shop open for so long. 

If you have any questions, comments, or would like to be part of shaping the future of the only Christian bookshop please do email office@acornvine.co.uk. We hope to be serving you again for Christmas 2022.
