Local Christian Bookstore
In 1990, with no business experience, owner Dawn LaPlante took a huge leap of faith and purchased a small Christian bookstore that was on the verge of closing. The Hope Chest has now been serving the Niagara Region for over 30 years.
The store was originally named The Master’s Book Shoppe which was owned by Operation Mobilization located in Port Colborne. The name was later changed to The Hope Chest. For 15 years the store called Ridgeway home before moving to Stevensville in the Town of Fort Erie. In 2016 a second location was opened in downtown Welland which sadly had to close in early 2022.
As a family run business, we truly care about our customers. We treasure the friendships we have established with many of our customers, some who have been with us from the very beginning.
If you are a new customer, we look forward to meeting you. If you are already a part of The Hope Chest family, we are always happy to see you again.
