BreadOfLifeBookstoreBeforeAfter-webGreenville, Ohio’s Bread of Life Christian bookstore recently unveiled its new redesign. With an updated exterior design, an interior paint job and a thorough rearranging of the store, the veteran retailer looks to inject some new life into its look.

The store, which has served the Greenville community for 27 years, was purchased by new owners in September 2013. One of the first goals of the new owners was a revamping of the store’s look.

“We wanted to be a little more modern and up-to-date with the rest of our downtown area,” said Julie Strait, co-owner of the Munce Group store.

Nealeigh Design Group, an architectural firm that Strait says has worked on several nearby shops in downtown Greenville, was responsible for the facelift that already has fans on the store’s Facebook page buzzing.

Despite the overhaul, the Bread of Life has been open throughout the process, with the store closing for the sum total of one half-day. Strait said that they hope to do a more full-fledged redesign of the store’s interior in the next few years, but she’s proud of the update they’ve done.

“We really have a great downtown area here,” Strait said.

Now, Bread of Life’s updated façade can not only add to the downtown area’s appeal, but also attract new customers into the revamped store.
