After 7.5 years, it is with a heavy heart that I announce our store closing. This was not easy by any means – it was in fact a very long and complicated decision. The lease is up for renewal at the end of this year and with a significant increase in rent, coupled with some heavy personal life events and the ongoing COVID pandemic, all roads seem to be leading us in this direction. Operating a small business is a difficult feat on a regular day, and trying to navigate it when other life events happen, in addition to trying to stay afloat during the ongoing changes of a pandemic, makes it that much more challenging.
I had hoped (and planned) to announce our closure with a few weeks lead time for our regular customers to enjoy the space safely one last time, however, with the changes that go into effect today, I think it is safest for our staff and customers if the café transitions to a strictly retail environment while we begin the process of closing our doors.
We’re taking the next couple of days to prepare the space for the transition and we will be reopening Saturday November 21st and Sunday November 22nd from 10am-6pm with our biggest sale yet! And yes, for those about to ask, we’ll be having a wicked clearout sale on all used board games too.
All board games will be available for in-store purchase, curbside pick-up or free local delivery for $50+ purchases.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown our little shop over the years. This entire experience is something I will truly never forget. ❤
