Every End is a New BeginningThis year spring is bringing a significant change to Paper & Chocolate. After 8 years in business, Vicki Petersen, owner, is looking forward to retiring and will be closing Paper & Chocolate on May 15th.

As a result, we will NO longer be taking any special orders and will not be printing any new invitations, but we will continue to complete all current orders.

We expect to be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10-5 until our inventory is sold or May 15 whichever comes first. We will update Facebook with any changes. So check there first.

On April 15, we will put the entire store on sale (except for chocolates and nuts). Even our newest inventory will be 30% off. Some items will be 50-75% off. All sale items are FINAL SALE, no returns.

“It has been such a joy to work with our loyal customers through many of the most significant events of their family’s lives–wedding invitations, birth announcements, birthday parties and showers. We are truly grateful that you have given us the opportunity to celebrate with you. Many of you have become much more than customers, so closing will be bittersweet. Thank you so much for your support.”

–Vicki Petersen
