Another Local Scrap Store Is Closing.

I received this yesterday via email. They had closed their other store earlier this year-the writing is on the wall for several others locally within an hours drive. Sad-but Michigan is falling into an economic pit it may not crawl out of for a long long time. At least 6 stores I visit have closed this year, two are for sale and one is nearing bankruptcy.

Many of you may have heard the news by now. This past weekend we made the announcement that we will be closing our Sterling Heights "Simple Pleasures Scrapbook Treasures" storefront. We plan to endeavor some new ventures in the scrapbooking industry! In addition, you will see us around at local school, church and charity crops, the Great Lakes Mega Meet and possibly Gibraltar Trade Center, etc. Keep us in mind if you are in need of a store set-up at your next crop event of 50 participants or more! We would love to set up our store for you!

We thank you all very much for shopping with us and supporting our business for the past near 8 years we've been in business. We will let you know our closing date as soon as we know. In the meantime, we hope you will continue to shop at "S.P.S.T." for all of your scrapbook needs!
