Ribbon-Cutting Held for BK’s Christian Store

The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the grand opening of BK’s Christian Store on Friday. BK’s Christian Store is a bookstore and nutrition center offering bibles, books, gifts, teacher and church supplies, nutritional supplies, and more. 

Angela and Andy Sherrill of Southside plan to carry on the tradition of the late Bread of Life owner, Phyllis Cowan, and her impact on the community.

“I worked in this store for years with Phyllis,” said owner Angela Sherill. “We discussed the store’s future many times before her passing, and I felt led to keep this store open. We hope to keep her legacy alive.”

“If you haven’t had the opportunity to go in and take a look, I encourage you to do so,” said BACC CEO Crystal Johnson. “The store is full of great stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, and much more.”

BK’s Christian Store, located at 1215 East Main Street in Batesville, is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Ambassadors in attendance included: Jessie Cargill (UAMS North Central), Adam Curtwright (Centennial Bank), Ashley Engles (Citizens Bank), Tammy Foster (First Community Bank), Brittney Harris (Independence Off-Road), Eva Heinricken (Merchants & Planters Bank), Lindy Hopper (First Community Bank), Dana Millikin (White River Now), Justin Russell (Bank of Cave City), and Carmen Waugh (Centennial Bank).
