Nancy Montgomery purchased the store in July of 2007, and after major renovations, re-opened on October 20th of the same year.
The store stayed in the same building as the original "Inspirations" bookstore (the former Lennoxville Pentecostal Church), until summer of 2011, at which time the store moved into the newly renovated Cornerstone Building at the corner of Queen and College Streets, Sherbrooke.
|Who are we?
Nancy Montgomery grew up in the Lennoxville area, attending Alexander Galt high school, and then Champlain College, Lennoxville. Nancy worked for several years at the Sports Medicine Clinic at Bishop's University. Then, God laid it on her heart to purchase this store and the rest is history.
Russ Hopkins is Nancy's "right-hand-man", filling in wherever needed. Russ is also the pastor of a local church: Church at the Elm and works here in the store in his spare time. Talk to Russ about the latest best selling book, or the current chart toppers in Christian music.
Philippa Allatt was born and raised in the Lennoxville/Sherbrooke area, studied at Champlain College, then Université de Sherbrooke. She's been a stay at home mom but comes in and volunteers at Inspirations Encore on a weekly basis and is a great asset to our ministry.
It is our desire to offer the area the finest of giftware from wall hangings and frames to Sarah's Angels collectibles & jewelry (some from local artisans). We also have a great variety of candles, and melts with several scents available, as well as a new line of candle warmers and jar candles. We have some Thomas Kinkade items available and as an Authorized Dealer for Thomas Kinkade, we are also able to order anything in their catalogue.
We also have a wide range of music from the various genres of Christian music, including country gospel, worship, contemporary, rock & alternative. We are very excited to be one of the first stores in the area to have a "SoNancy" music system, where you can easily listen to music available in our store and online.
Our "Book Nook" has a large selection of books from well known Christian authors and includes fiction, non-fiction, Christian Living and although we do not carry many books on theology, we are able to order them for you.
Taking into consideration Nancy's experience as a Floral Arranger, we will also be offering a "Gift Basket Service", where customers can choose various items from the store, such as a mug, music, book and / or gift, and we will arrange it beautifully in a wicker basket. It will also be our pleasure to deliver it within the Sherbrooke / Lennoxville area.
We will be pleased to order any items for you that we do not carry, with most orders coming in within a week.
