Logos Bookstore was a Christian book store on South University, the first of a chain started in Ann Arbor by Jim Carlson.


The year was 1968, and the first Logos Bookstore was opened in Ann Arbor, Michigan under the auspices of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Early success with this location piqued the interest of people in communities across the country, resulting in the opening of additional Logos stores nationwide.
