This Lemstone Christian Store has a very limited selection of books, Bibles, and music. While they can order almost anything for you, why wait when a different (non-Lemstone) Christian book store in town will likely have what you're looking for right there?

Also, the staff is not very efficient. I've come to expect a long wait in line when I visit (for example, one employee will spend 10 minutes helping a customer order something or sign up for a mailing list while the other will be off casually chatting about the various gift items they sell).

Their main Christian competitor in town manages to be well stocked with a much larger selection and helpful staff. I'm glad to have multiple chains in town, but I can find no compelling reason to chose Lemstone.

This store is not huge but they make good use of the space that they have available. They have a nice selection of Christian music. The best part is that you can listen to cds to find one that you like.

Besides music, they have a nice selection of Christian themed items. They also have items for kids and a little kids play area. My kids like looking at the Veggietale items while I look at books or cds.

I could hang out in this store all day. My kids are occupied w/ puppets and kids shows while I am looking for a gift or fave CD. The staff here are very friendly and very warm. Coupons are always a plus here too.

PROS: Relax and Hang Out-able
CONS:

Great selection of books. The owner is willing to order items for you as well. The store is elegant, yet kid friendly with a video running at a kid sized table. Has an area to listen to CDs before you purchase.

Parking out front.
