Does anyone know of any in the Charlotte area or close to home in the Southwest side? I've searched online and found the Catholic company which I know of, but I don't think they have an actual store.

I know I'm shopping very late, but looking for a special gift before Sat night. I might have to just get a card since Good Friday is tomorrow and stores maybe closed anyway. It would be nice for the future though since my kids go to Catholic schools.

I've heard there might be a store at St Matthews off of Rae Rd???

Thank you!

There are two I can think of:
Go to the regular college bookstore on the college campus of Belmont Abbey. Connected to it is a GREAT Catholic book and gift shop. It is worth the trip. Tons of stuff from books to Bibles to Rosaries to games to stuffed animals (and of course cards, etc.). Great selection of varied items for all ages...all Catholic based.

The other one I know of is in the Family Life Center at ST. Mark Catholic Church in Huntersville. I don't know how wide the selection is there, however.

Thank you so much for both of those suggestions! I'm going to call Belmont Abby this morning and see if they're open. : )

There is a gift shop at St Matthews. It has some books, rosaries, medals, etc. However it is a small gift shop so there isn't a large selection.

The closest one to southwest Charlotte might be Mary's Garden in Gastonia

In case you're still watching this thread, the christian store near Ashley Furniture at 74/485 is going out of business. Maybe you can get a deal on something you want. Hope that helps.
