"When are you going to open?" It is the first question I answer in the morning, and the last question I answer before I go to bed! I'm glad everyone is just as excited as we are to open.
Our opening date will be July 9th at 10:00 a.m. We are going to to be open 5 days a week 10-5 to start with. These days and hours are subject to change. We will announce via email and Facebook if they do change.
The facts are, it costs a lot of money to turn the key at the store. If we aren't meeting those costs through the front door, we will have to close it down to conserve resources to make it in the long haul. We have been scrimping and saving, just trying to make ends meet during the shut down. The utility bills have been considerably lower which helped to purchase extra safety measures at the store for COVID-19.
To be honest July, is going to stink. Sales tax from March and April are due, my personal taxes are due and my building loans resume again. So I am going to tighten our belts, throw open the doors, pray Ron and I don't get sick because getting COVID-19 would bankrupt us.
With that said, please wear a mask when shopping our store. If you believe you've been around anyone with the virus, please stay home. If you remotely feel ill, stay home and take care of yourself.
Fun New Product
I am so excited to share three new product lines from Photoplay. We are bringing to you: The New Normal, Not A Creature Was Stirring and Christmas Cheer. These lines are a pre-order item and will be shipping to us mid July. Our website has changed just a bit in the last few days. You may notice when you click the collections tab it looks a bit different. Make sure to click the 12x12 paper tab to view all of the papers in each line. When you click that tab it makes it easier to view and shop all of the papers in the line. Click this link to check it out. https://www.thepinecityscrapbookingco.com/shop/PreOrder.htm

We are still waiting for more info on opening Scrapbooking In The Pines Retreat Center. There are so many rules and regulations to follow, and as you know those rules change so fast these days. I am hoping the retreat will open not long after the store. I know for a fact things will be very different back there. More news will follow at a later date.
