All volunteers work out of our brick and mortar store location in Atlanta, GA. If you are interested in volunteering, please email us at [email protected]
Will you special order items?
Yes, we will special order items if they are available from the publisher or distributor. Please call the store at 404-237-0831 to request a special order. Please have as much information about the item you are looking for as possible. Special orders often require research and may take several days for us to let you know if a product is available. We always try to let the customer know if we believe and item may take some time to receive.
Can you ship items from your store to a location outside the United States?
At this time, the Cathedral Book Store can only ship products within the United States. We cannot currently accommodate requests to ship things to countries outside the United States.
Are all of the products you have available on your website?
Unfortunately, not at this time. As a small faith-based business we are mindful of our costs. Some of the beautiful gifts and other items we carry would require special shipping and the cost of shipping sometimes prohibits us from making an item available on our website. For the best selection of our merchandise, please visit our brick and mortar store.
Do you offer imprinting or engraving?
We offer imprinting on Bibles and Prayer Books
PROGRAMS AND EVENTS:
Do you ever have events with authors?
