About Us

The history of The Open Door dates all the way back to 1984. During that year, Doris Farmer opened a Christian bookstore in the Honey Creek Mall in Terre Haute, Indiana. This original store was 1,800 square feet.

First Expansion

In the eight years following our opening, we had already established an excellent reputation in the community for offering a wide selection and friendly sales staff. As a result, our store experienced record growth, and we had no choice but to expand our stock and services.
In January of 1992, we moved into a new 7,000 square foot building. This location is on the service road called 3rd Place, behind the mall.

Second Expansion

The next generation of our family received the baton in the summer of 1994. They managed and oversaw the continued growth of the store, including another addition in the summer of 1998. This additional 2,000 square feet allowed us, again, to provide more stock and services to the community.

Gingersnaps Cafe

In the spring of 2008, we remodeled and a cafe became a part of the interior. The Gingersnaps Cafe has been an integral part of the continued success of creating a community atmosphere and relaxed shopping experience.
