"Passion" still bringing in business

July 2, 2004

Albany -- Christian bookstore operators say the boost their businesses got from "The Passion of the Christ" hasn't end yet.

Christian bookstore workers say they aren't selling as much as they did when "The Passion" first came out, but the movie has sparked a new group of customers who are buying religious videos and books with themes from the popular movie.

Workers say pre-orders of "The Passion of the Christ" DVD, due out in August, are adding up. Several bookstores in Albany expect to sell hundred of copies when it's released.
