I'm not surprised. There are two Archivers within 10 miles of me (in opposite directions).

I think I go in once every 2 or 3 years?

I think they are overpriced and they never have what I go in looking for. I always end up going online instead (after visiting the store).

Wow, I'm surprised, because the one near me (GA) had all kinds of things...supplies Michaels never carries. (Scor-tape, ODBD stamps) My only complaint was not enough coupons. It's just discouraging, because when you go online, unless you order $50 or more, there's a shipping charge, and most often I don't NEED $50 of "stuff" hahaha!

I loved that I got so many coupons and sale announcements from Archivers through email, but they are a couple of hours away so very hard to get there often.

Here's the email letter and I believe it was also on their Facebook page:

Archiver's: What's in Store

I will miss visiting Archivers which was always a special occasion .

Are you referring to There She Goes stamps closing shop? That's the only stamp company I heard recently announced they were closing down. I was so bummed - I was a big fan of their products and will miss them greatly!

I recently heard that Creative Memories was restructuring. I still love scrapping/stamping as I ever have, but after a while, I found I had plenty of supplies. I really don't need to go shopping very often. I go to CKC once a year, and usually place one or two big SU orders a year. I have is much patterned paper that I'm really trying to use up what I have. Don't know if it's the same with other folks- having plenty already.

All their stores? Oh no! I guess that answers my question on the other Archivers thread. Boohoo ;-(

Yes, that's the one. I hadn't ordered anything from them lately, but they're stamps are/were really cute.
You know, I just don't BUY the way I once did. My paper stash is the family joke (it overruns my apartment) I don't need any embellies or stamps, (I love digitals) so the only thing I buy is Scor-tape, or now I am in the process of replacing some of my Ciao markers w/Sketch, and that's only when Michael's offers 50% off.

The closing of Archiver's altogether is definitely sad. I live too many hours from Archivers to have been a true 'customer'. Every time a brick & mortar crafty/stampy store closes, it feels like another threat to the crafty lifestyle & hobby that I adore.

Always found unusual things when I was lucky enough to be close to an Archiver's (usually while visiting family in other states.) Didn't they attempt to sell online for a while?

The Annex will also be closing:

"What about the Annex?

Online shopping through ArchiversAnnex.com will continue into early February. If you have an e-gift card for the Annex, you will still be able to use it at any time. We recommend shopping early, especially for Archiver’s exclusive items—when they’re gone, they’re gone for good."
