About Us

Special occasions deserve special gifts.

Since 1921 the John A. Reger Company has been filling a void for religious gifts & church goods you just can’t find in regular stores. And after nearly 100 years, we’re still doing what we’ve always done best: providing for the people of God.

Our mission? Serving Christ by serving you! We’re committed to giving our customers personal, friendly service rooted in faith. Whatever the occasion — be it baptism, first communion, or even birthday — Reger’s has an ever expanding inventory and a tireless dedication to serving the needs of our Christian community.


In 1921, John A. Reger founded The John A. Reger Company when he opened Reger's Church Supplies and Religious Articles on Cherry Street in Downtown Toledo. By 1945, John's son, Joseph Reger, assumed ownership. When John’s brothers returned from service in World War II, he was joined in running the business. Owed to their diligence, a second store was established in 1950 on Madison Avenue. The new decade saw the origins of what is now a company tradition, the annual Reger Catalog!

In 1967, the Cherry Street store was relocated to what has become a familiar downtown landmark: Reger's Church Supplies on Erie Street. The Madison Avenue store closed its doors in the early 80s as the company centralized its services on Erie Street. From the heart of Downtown Toledo, Reger's continued serving our faithful clientele for years to come. Many customers still recall fond memories of their experiences at our downtown location.

The 90s brought about necessary change for the company. In November 1997, the store opened its doors on 4100 Secor Road, in the heart of West Toledo. With the new location came much needed space, including a large retail showroom, an open office, and a shipping department & warehouse.

God having blessed us with good business, we outgrew the building on Secor. In winter of 2024, we made the switch to 1220 Ford St in Maumee, Ohio, 43537, where we currently reside today! Today, with a team that feels like family, Reger’s is as committed as ever to serving each and every one of our customers with Christian joy and enthusiasm.
