Our staff will gladly assist you in any need you may have; from ordering church candles, to just a simple St. Joseph statue, we are here to help you! So please feel free to come by and visit us when your in the Nashville area, and see why we are more than a bookstore.

Deriving its name from its long local tradition St. Mary's Bookstore is now in its eighth decade of offering Christian Books, Supplies, gifts and collectible.

Started in the basement of St. Mary's Church in Nashville, Tennessee in 1939, the bookstore was owned and operated by the Catholic Diocese of Nashville until 1979 when store founder Monsignor Charles Williams retired. Present owner Jean Dortch then purchased the bookstore from the Diocese. Three years later she moved into a lovely and conveniently located 9000 square foot building at 1909 West End Avenue in Nashville, where it is currently located. The store is operated by Jean Dortch and her daughters Donna Turner and Julie Cragon, and her son-in-law Allen Cragon.

St. Mary's is truly a family business and is, as their motto declares, more than a bookstore.
