Lynchburg Bookstore Featured in Patriotic Store Book

Lynchburg, VA - A building with 50-stars on it will soon be featured in a coffee table book about patriotic themed stores across America. The red, white and blue store Bookshop on the Avenue was chosen from more than 100,000 Virginia businesses. The store was photographed a couple weeks ago for the book. One of the owners says the colors make the store bright and easy to find. "It is good because when people are driving around they say where are you located. We just say we're on Memorial in the big red, white, and blue house, and they can spot it right away. It is easy to see," said Co-Owner Maggie Carey. Carey says the red, white, and blue theme started about 2005, and it is to show their strong patriotism. Walt Carey, the co-owner, is also a Navy veteran.
