The Papyrus stationery chain (Website) will be closing all of its stores in the country according to Retail Dive due to "current challenges of the retail industry." A letter confirming the closure was sent to employees January 17th from the company that owns Papyrus, Schurman Retail Group.
Orlando has one location of the chain inside the Mall at Millenia. The Daily City confirmed twice with employees of the Orlando store that that location will be closing. An exact date of the closure was not given. A clearance sale is in progress and once the merchandise is sold, the store will close according to one employee.
Mall at Millenia Marketing Director Brenda Lounsberry told The Daily City, “Our Papyrus store is open at this time. At this point I have no further details to share.”
No official announcement has been released by the company.
The store's website says there are over 260 locations.
Papyrus was founded in the family kitchen of Marcel and Margrit Schurman in 1950. It sold greeting cards, wrapping paper, wooden music boxes, ornaments, and other gifts.
