Guest Blogger Laura here again. I promised I would return today with more store info, so here I am. The big news is we are opening tomorrow! Our special hours for Thursday, January 1st are 12pm-5pm. Please note that these are not our normal Thursday hours, and we will not be open in the evening. Also, we won't have our normal Thursday Make and Take card tomorrow. The make and takes will resume next week on the 8th. We will resume with our normal hours starting Friday, January 2nd.
If you get a chance to stop in tomorrow, be sure to check out the Christmas merchandise which is now 50% off as well as our 50% off basket which had new items added as we renovated. You have to love a sale!
We haven't finished all of our renovations, but we have at least completed all the big tasks. Displays are moved, the floor is painted, and the lighting is installed. Most of the inventory is moved, but we are still figuring out where to place a few of the stamp sections. I imagine there will be some minor readjusting in the next few weeks as we get comfortable in our "new" home.
I thought you guys would like to see a few more photos of the store. As you can see, we got a LOT done since my last set of pictures. In the picture above, you can see all the way down to the classroom. Since the time this picture was taken, the round table and ladder were moved so that you can actually walk down the aisle. The fixture with the inkpads also has more on it now, but it still is a work in progress. The new fixture is larger than our old one, and you can really see the ink pads better as well a items such as paints and Stickles. Look at how easy it is to see all the colors of StazOn on the endcap!
In the second picture, you can see part of the new Copic area as well as the other side of the ink pad fixture. We moved the baskets on the floor and will eventually move the paper rack that is between the Copics and the embellishment fixture. Again, it is all about the minor adjustments.
If you have the day off tomorrow and can't stand the thought of a day of football, we hope you can stop by. Besides the Christmas sale, there is a brand new Great Impressions stamp of the month and sample board as well as the new Basic Grey Bittersweet line of products and Amuse's new Valentine images. Nice!
