From the shop's About Us page:
The History of Southend Christian Bookshop Ltd

Established in 1971, we are a group of independently owned interdenominational Christian bookshops, serving Christians throughout Essex.

Our first shop opened in Southend in 1971 and this was followed within a few years by opening a shop in the county town of Chelmsford. In 1989, we opened a shop in the High Street of Brentwood but sadly this had to close in the summer of 2007 due to the fact that Essex County Council wanted to build a road through it. However in 2010 we opened a shop in Pilgrims Hall conference centre, Brentwood, in partnership with its charity. Our wholesale division SCB Services was started in 1990 and today it supplies various products to the Christian book trade...

Editor's Note: Sadly the Chelmsford shop ceased trading in January 2012: see the News & Notes section opposite for detailed reports.
