Support of Independently-Owned Stores

The Central Ohio Scrapbooking and Card-Making Community has been hard hit these last couple of months.

Three independently-owned stores, including Pickerington favorite Pizazz It!, are closing their doors. A local scrapbook retreat location is also closing.

Thankfully, a fourth store will not be closing. Scrapbook Art in Lewis Center announced new ownership and will be re-opening shortly after today's final liquidation!

It is even more important than ever that we support our independently-owned stores. I am just as guilty as the next person for going to a big chain to save a few dollars -- especially with those 40% - 50% off coupons. But, I am definitely going to make even more of an effort to buy as much as possible from businesses such as Scrapbook Art.

Finally, I send my deepest appreciation to the following. You have all touched so many lives. Thank you for all that you have done. Here's wishing you only the best.
  • Sue and the Pizazz It! family, with a special call-out to my card instructor Tiffany
  • Scrapbook Art Owners Emeriti Caron and Amy
  • New Scrapbook Art Owner Terri
