BATON ROUGE- A popular spot for faithful to buy books and other religious materials is closing.

The Bible and Book Store can't beat the competition created by the Internet and other new technology. Owners of the store on Government Street said the economy also took a toll on business.

"God will be in control," Billie Sykora, with the Bible and Book Store said.

"There will never be another one like this," Mary McKee added.

"They have been members of our church...and also members of our community."

The store closes Saturday.
