They're closing at the end of October :(

I saw some signs that this might be happening, but was hoping it wasn't true. I'm working on my last set of cards for them this weekend and then that's it :cry:

We will still have an Archivers at least. But it's not the same. Boo hoo.

Do you have an LSS?

I just read their email. Sooooo sad. It was a great place to work! I'm glad they were around though. I was able to meet and make a lot of wonderful friends!

we haven't had a LSS for a few years. I did visit Paula's actual Back Porch Memories Store in Fairbanks but it was a 10 hour drive so it's not exactly local !! (we were doing other things too !)

There is an Archivers 45 minutes from my home.
I wish there was a LSS in my area! That's too bad about yours closing.

That's a bummer!!

I have Hobby Lobby and Michael's close by. The store that I consider to be my LSS is 30 minutes away.

I still have three, but they are all about 30 miles away. Since I began scrapbooking, approx. 12 years ago, I have seen 14 LSS close. When I was on holiday in Vancouver BC and Seattle, it was very difficult to find more than 1 or 2 LSS.

In addition to the usual costs that an American LSS would have, we also have to deal with foreign exchange, customs, duty, Goods & Services Tax and shipping. A pizza box can cost $45 USA to ship from the US to New Zealand.

The last LSS within 45 minutes of my house closed last month. We had a great rubber stamp store in our area and it's closing at the end of this month....but at least in that case it's because the owner is retiring after 30 years and not due to lack of business. We have several Michaels and Hobby Lobby stores and one Archivers in our area, but no more LSS's. :(

Paula's store was close to my house...and I know where she lives! We had another scrapbook/knitting shop that phased out the paper and kept the yarn. We used to have a LSS in Green Bay, but it closed. Same with the little shop in Anchorage. Bummer.

I do have an LSS and she's only been open a year! Business seems to be doing well for her even with a couple of family setbacks (her grandmother passed away and she was closed for a week and then her daughter had a baby and she was closed a few days.) She's gonna have to hire someone who can be there when she can't or her business won't thrive. I think she has problems letting someone else take the reins...which I can understand...but you run a business and sometimes you need another employee.

Jenny, she definitely needs someone else in there! Even just so she doesn't burn out :shock:
