Our Paper Place To Close Newark Shop

The scrapbook shop first opened in Newark in November 2010.

After a little more than two years of operation, Newark’s go-to shop for scrapbookers is closing its doors, according to the shop’s Facebook page and co-founder Gloria Kee.

Our Paper Place is closing but its final date of operation is unknown, Kee said.

Numerous items are on sale, with sales ranging from 40 percent to 60 percent off, according to the Our Paper Place Facebook page.

And customers have expressed sadness about the store’s upcoming closure on Facebook.

“I will miss your store… so sorry that you are closing your doors. Nice shops like yours are hard to come by,” wrote Mali Colas on Facebook. 

Our Paper Place fist opened in Newark in November 2010. For more information about the store, visit www.ourpaperplace.com

We're working on finding out more about this too! We expect to have a story by early next week.

It's really hard for a shop like The Paper Place to survive. Not enough business to pay the overhead with a limited amount of merchandise. It's too bad.

It's getting harder and harder to find a decent brick and morter store to shop in. With businesses leaving Newark, we mostly have only the mega shopping centers to shop in, - like Pacific Commons. My big complaint about Pacific Commons is it has no where near enough handicapped spaces reserved for those of us who are not able to walk very far, and it's not uncommon to see cars parked in the spaces available without a handicapped placard or license plate and no one seems to care,- except of course the handicapped.If I can't find what I want in Newark I'll look online. It's worth it to pay the postage rather than circle round and round looking for a place to park that's reasonably close to where we want to shop or eat.

Mona, I've often thought about the same thing but sometimes while I'm tuning into the County Wide Frequency, ACSO is ALWAYS busting non Disabled peeps in the Disabled Parking. So they do get what's coming to them, not entirely hopeless. Every time I see a Non Disabled Parker, I take Photos of the License Plate. My Favorite types of Offenders are those who have the Disabled License Plate & Placard, yet are young and fully Healthy and can Sprint / Run to nearby Stores. Bay Area is full of Injustices. I'm so glad that I don't have a Physical Business in Newark. I don't have to play by Newark's Rules! Most of my Client Base is from Countries like Asia, Europe, and Australia, in fact I don't even cater to Locals. Gotta love Paypal!
