Dear friends of Crux Books,
Thank you so much for your prayers, concerns, and support—it is greatly appreciated! Many of you have responded with various ideas, options, etc. Please be aware that we have been involved in various meetings and conversations with various parties over many months regarding our situation and the PanAm/ParaPanAm games. Many of you have expressed your concern for the Crux Books staff, thank you. Please know that the Crux Books staff has been kept informed throughout the process and with the knowledge that we might have little option but to close for a lengthy period of time. They have been given the time necessary to seek alternate summer employment.
During the physical store closure period we will still be able to operate by taking orders through our on-line web store, ship orders to our customers and provide local delivery to many of our downtown church accounts. We will be able to respond to email requests and will respond as we can to telephone messages.
The decision to close from Jun 22nd to Aug 15th has been made; what is at issue is the lack of compensation for the closure. We are hopeful that the PanAm Games organization will still do the right thing and compensate us.
