Archiver's at Village Pointe to close

Scrapbooking and paper crafting supply retailer Archiver's will close all of its 33 stores, including its Omaha location at Village Pointe shopping center, by mid-February.

The Minnetonka, Minn.-based company made the announcement in an email to customers Thursday and on the company's Facebook page.

Village Pointe spokeswoman Kim Jones said the mall had not received official notice that the approximately 8,400-square-foot store on the center's main street was closing its doors, but an Archiver's employee said it will close Feb. 15.

The company, which has been in bankruptcy since April, cited advances in technology and a weak economy for its demise. The email said the company's efforts to adapt and streamline had not worked and the stores “simply do not generate the sales needed to support the business.”

The email said all stores will host tag sales on items starting immediately. Fixtures, such as tables and chairs, also will be for sale. All workshops will continue through mid-January, and Scrapbook Mania events scheduled through Feb. 15 will continue as planned.
