We're drying out...

The Paper Chase will re-open tonight at the “old store” at 5:00 p.m. for the Downtown Christmas Open House. We will be in this location until our “new store” is repaired and refurbished. I cannot say “thank you” enough for everyone’s help, phone calls, emails, prayers, text messages, food and more - we would not be where we are without our sweet friends and family.

An update from The Paper Chase

As some of you know, our lovely new store at 706 Bank Street received substantial rain damage on Monday night/ Tuesday morning. Due to the extent of damage, it is necessary that the repairs and refurbishment begin immediately. Today we will be in the process of moving back to 826 Bank Street, and will temporarily be in that location until the repairs are complete. As one sweet friend said, “we will just chase The Paper Chase up and down Bank Street!”

First and foremost, no one was injured in any way. We are so thankful for this! We did lose some inventory, so please bear with us as we get re-stocked. I apologize for any missed calls (our phones did not survive!) or emails in the last day and a half. We should hopefully have our phones working again today, and do have limited email access. If you need to reach us, please email and I will be in touch as soon as possible.

Thank you so much to everyone for your help, thoughts, prayers, calls, emails and texts. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate your support. We will hopefully re-open for the Downtown Merchants Open House on Thursday, November 12 at 5:00 p.m. Thank you again, and we hope to see you soon!
