A New Day for It's God's Choice: Back in Business

Officially Announcing that It's God's Choice Christian Bookstore Is Back in Business Locally and Online.

Landover, MD, USA -- After about a year, It's God's Choice has finally officially re-opened with a new store location in Landover, Maryland. The new location is 7838 Central Avenue, Landover, MD 20785, inside of D's Hairstylists. The store still carries hard to find black gospel sheet music, songbooks and accompaniment tracks as well as church supplies, books, bibles, etc. The store takes orders for choir and pastoral robes too. "What we do not have on hand, you can probably order at our website, http://www.igccb.com," says Carolyn Walker, Store Music Buyer.

The storefront was closed some years ago and operated only using the website and by phone on April 1, 2013. Economy troubles have hit Christian bookstores very hard. Lots of Christian Bookstores have gone out of business even though some had been in business for over 25 years. It's God's Choice Christian Bookstore has been in business since 2002. "Unfortunately, overhead expenses increased far faster than sales. We just could not keep up," says Carolyn Walker, Store Music Buyer. "Most of our sales are website-related even though we had an antiquated website which did not take credit cards at first," says Thelma Lee, Store Manager.

As of April 2017, most of the store sales were generated from the new improved website and from loyal customers who phoned in their orders. For some of the churches in the local area, It's God's Choice staff personally delivered orders depending on the size and went out to churches to measure choirs for robes. Most of It's God's Choice customers receive their merchandise via the mail. The store accepts payment through the website, over the phone as well as with PayPal.

Now customers can once again come to It's God's Choice and enjoy the shopping experience. For those who cannot come to the store to get sheet music, they can use the website. In fact, customers can download some sheet music directly from our website. This could not be done before with the old website. "Basically everything that we sell in the store, we will have on the website. We have over 4,000 products online and are adding to the site almost daily," states Thelma Lee.

The phone number is the same, which is 301-499-5799. The website address is still http://www.igccb.com and the email address is still christianmusicandbooks@yahoo.com.

In 2002, It's God's Choice Christian Bookstore was founded by Thelma Lee, a former employee of Rejoice Christian Bookstore and she has over 20 years of experience in this field. It's God's Choice specializes in special orders and carries black gospel CDs, sheet music, songbooks, piano instructional books, bibles, books, greeting cards, gifts, church supplies, and children items. In addition, the store special orders pastoral and choir robes. For further information regarding this move, please call 301-499-5799 and ask for Thelma, the store manager. Please note phone problems: We can't retrieve voice mail messages left on the phone, so please call back. Thanks.
