Oasis Christian Books in Wisbech has announced that 2020 is their last year of full trading.
The bookshop at 88 Norfolk Street is to close on Christmas Eve but will be open on Fridays in 2021 until they sell the building.
Owners Richard and Maggie Welford said: "Sadly we are into our last year of full trading. Books, stationery and cards are selling at half price.
"Richard will continue to supply churches with candles, altar breads, church stationery etc as long as they wish and to do book search for those who wish it.
"The Wednesday drop in will be at our house from 10am to 9pm and we will move the Friday drop in there too when the shop is no longer available."
Following the announcement they have received support from regular visitors.
Jo Buchanan Hay said: "Sad in many ways - so many great memories for our family (as well as too many books!) - but also exciting as a new chapter opens."
