Top of Page Third Space Books, Poole

Third Space Books was one of several UK trading identities used by the Brewer family, Texas in their now notorious run down of the former SPCK Christian bookshop chain (2006 - 2009). Whilst the trading identities of the Durham and Chichester shops (both now trading independently) were changed in what appears to have been part of a complex strategy to evade creditors and ringfence profitable shops prior to a spurious attempt to file "St Stephen the Great LLC" for bankruptcy in the Texas Bankruptcy Courts in June 2008, the purpose of this particular trading identity remains unclear to this day.

Despite the claimed bankruptcy, the family (headed up by J Mark and Philip W Brewer) continued to trade variously as SPCK St Stephen the Great Bookshops, Durham Cathedral Shop, ENC Management Company, Chichester Shop Management Co and Third Space Books. The parent organisation, the St Stephen the Great Charitable Trust (also known as the St Stephen the Great Trust and commonly abbreviated to either SSG or SSGCT) was taken over by the Charity Commission in 2009 in response to a number of complaints about their trading activities; the trading company, St Stephen the Great, was formally dissolved on 27/04/2010.
