Official Announcement made....
Diane Ashworth at Clipper Street Scrapbook Company is retiring! So on June 15th... Deanna Hutchison & Stacey Wikelin are the new owners of the Langley location. Good luck & congrats Deanna :)
This change also means that the Coquitlam location of Clipper Street is closing soon. Yes I did say "closing!" & their Richmond location closed just a few weeks ago. It's nice to see those that have worked hard to build successful businesses are now able to retire and enjoy life.... but it's also sad that the number of LSS's is reducing.
There aren't too many "brick & mortar"LSS's left locally, I'm looking at a minimum 25 minute drive. Langley is a tad too far for me to just "pop out" to the scrapbook store, I have to plan a whole days event to make it worthwhile for me to maneuver all the traffic and the dreaded Port Mann bridge. The traffic, whether it's rush hour or not can be horrendous! & god forbid if there's an accident or stall on the bridge. To be honest, the last time I went over that bridge was September 2008 to go to the Crop 4 Kids!! but I have been promising my friend Diane a trip out to Langley.... perhaps this summer for a photo shoot and some shopping!
