Changes Are Coming
Almost a year ago I locked the front door to my store and there was a lot of uncertainty about this pandemic. I had no idea what it would mean for my business or what the future would hold for Two Scrapbook Friends.

As a team we have had to adjust, evaluate, adapt and pivot many times over the last 11 months. Lots and lots of hard work has kept my business going and it has lead me to the decision I am ready to share with you today.

We Are Moving!!!
Two Scrapbook Friends is excited to announce that we will be moving our business to a new location. Along with this move there will be changes to our vision and our daily operations.

Over the past 5 1/2 years, we have experienced tremendous growth, both in our store and on our online platform. We ship coast to coast in Canada and our US business is growing too. Everyday we greet new customers who have found our crafting community and want to be a part of all the things we offer.

Growth means we need more space. Our new location is double the size of our current store and that means we have more room for more product and services. This is all very exciting BUT it also means things are going to be different and people don't like change........I fully expect there are going to be some sad faces.

What Does This Mean?
At this point I am sure all you want to know is 'what does this mean'? Well, first off I can tell you that it is going to start happening very fast!! It won't be long before we have the keys to our new space and it is pretty much 'move in ready'. We will be back and forth between both places and we will be doing our very best to make the transition as easy as possible!!

Here is what you can expect:

  • Our primary focus will be our online store with curbside/in-store pickup and shipping options.

  • Our new location is zoned as 'flex space' and that means that we have many, many options available to us for how we use it.

  • Due to the pandemic, in-store shopping is obviously not an option. Moving forward we do not plan to have a retail store like we did prior to Covid-19. That being said it DOES NOT mean you won't have the opportunity for in-person shopping. It just won't be 6 days a week from 10am - 5pm. For the foreseeable future our focus will be online shopping BUT we do have plans for fun things moving forward.

  • More space means more products!!! We plan on filling our new space with lots and lots of great new products. Our front entry has a great space to display new products and kits.

  • Once we are up and running smoothly at our new location we are hoping for lots more online interaction. We will continue with our Facebook lives and we hope to be adding in online classes, crops, tutorials and more!

  • Our new store is only about 5 minutes away from our current location. It is very conveniently located in Waterloo with bus routes close by (as well as the LRT). There is lots of parking and very easy access to our space.

  • Once it is safe to do so, we will still be exhibiting at all your favourite events and hosting our retreats again. Our booth/on-site store will be filled with even more great products, make 'n takes, kits and more!!

  • Our official opening date at the new location will be April 1st (that is not joke) but we will keep you updated of all important information. Things could move along a bit faster than we expect.

The sky is the limit with this new space. It will grow and evolve into your favourite place to shop (just like it is now, only better), We have a strong community of crafters/friends and we will share many, many more years of friendship along the way.
