A local bookstore has purchased the remaining stock from another shop that closed late last year.

Grand Rapids-based Baker Book House said today it acquired the books from the former Eerdmans Bookstore, and it is offering those books at a 50-percent discount from Feb. 12-17.

The 3,500-book inventory includes multi-volume commentaries, Bible dictionaries, theological texts and Christian-living titles.

“We have a great many books that pastors, students and lay readers will find of interest,” said Sue Smith, manager, Baker Book House. “We encourage buyers to come early for the best selection.”

Selections include books from other publishers besides Eerdmans Publishing. The publishing side of the Eerdmans company is still in business.

Students can show ID for an additional 10-percent discount, and all shoppers can register to win a $100 gift certificate.

Any remaining books will be posted at once the sale ends.
